    Nano technology has a large number of applications in different fields of science and technology. Nano particle are the tiny particles which are being used in upcoming technology due to their small size and high capability. The properties of nanoparticles depend largely on their synthesis procedures. There are different methods for the synthesis of nano particles using different conditions. In this review synthesis of five nano particles namely chromium, manganese, silver, iron and tin has been discussed. Possible methods of their preparation, conditions and properties are the main concern of this review. The results from various investigations performed by different scientists using some methods have been summarized. The applications, conveniences and difficulties of each synthesis method are also discussed in-detail. Applications of nano particles and metal oxide are also elaborated.
