The scope of the present study was to evaluate the In-vitro biological potential of Green synthesized silver nanoparticles from Chromolaena odorata, Caesalpinia coriaria (Bark) and Caesalpinia coriaria (Leaf). We investigated the effect of green synthesized silver nanoparticles from Chromolaena odorata, Caesalpinia coriaria (Bark) and Caesalpinia coriaria (Leaf) by studying anti-mitotic activity An attempt has been made to evaluate the anti-mitotic activity of silver nanoparticles using Allium cepa roots. The mitotic index of the root tips meristem was calculated and compared with the standard methotrexate. Antimitotic activity results shows the mitotic index was ranged from 30-40%. Green synthesized silver nanoparticles from Chromolaena odorato, Caesalpinia coriaria (Bark) and Caesalpinia coriaria (Leaf) possess significant anti-mitotic activity.
