Abstract: Nanoscience and nanotechnology is the key towards enrichment of human life. It has been functional in almost all the sectors viz. energy, safety, medicine, biomedical, security, communication, space, health, agriculture, etc. The class of nanomaterials from 0D (dimensional) to 3D includes nanotubes, nanorods, nanoparticles (NPs), nanowires, nanoplates, nanodots (quantum dots), etc. Among the noble metals, silver nanomaterials have been of great interest since ancient times. It is being used in different fields such as textile industry, food packaging, cosmetic industry, catalysis, various bio applications, coatings, DNA sequencing, SERS, etc. The last decade has concentrated on its antibacterial potential and its use in nano-bio-applications. The interesting optical properties specifically surface plasmon resonance (SPR) have been studied widely to explore its practical application in sensors, bio-devices, data storage, spectroscopic techniques, catalysis etc. It can be tuned by varying size and shape of NPs. Along with this SPR is the prime easy tool to get the prima-facie information about size and shape of the synthesised nanomaterials. This paper aims to focus on shape based SPR of silver nanostructures.
