An environmental benign, non-toxic and safe method of synthesis of gold nanoparticles was employed using the aqueous extract of Eichhornia crassipes under various experimental conditions. The formation of gold nanoparticles was investigated by UV-visible spectrophotometer. The size and shape of the synthesized gold nanoparticles was confirmed by X-ray diffraction analysis, Scherrer’s formula and Scanning Electron Microscopy. Comparative study of experimental methods revealed that the homogenization method results in rapid synthesis of gold nanoparticles. The size of the gold nanoparticles varies depending upon the method of synthesis.
