In recent years the utilization of secondary metabolites from plant extract has emerged as novel technology for the synthesis of various nanoparticles. In this manuscript synthesis of palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) by using Terminalia bellirica fruit extract as reducing agent and capping agent. The synthesized PdNPs were characterized by using UV-visible spectroscopy. The particle morphology, distribution and size were characterized by HRTEM and particle size analyzer, and the particle size is found to be 30-45 nm, phase purity of synthesized PdNPs were characterized by X-ray diffraction patterns. The active bio molecules that are responsible for the synthesis and capping of PdNPs were characterized by Fourier transformed infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The stability of palladium nanoparticles were characterized by zeta potential. We also studied the comparison of EDS spectrum of synthesized PdNPs and Terminalia bellirica fruit extract, and its anti-fungal activity.
