The present study described biosynthesis of nickel nanoparticles using a bacterial strain Alcaligenes faecalis. The synthesized nanoparticles were characterized by UV-visible, XRD, SEM and FT-IR spectral studies. Nanoparticles were tested for their anti-inflammatory property. Nickel nanoparticles exhibited 51.46 percentage inhibitions at concentration of 200 µg/ml. This biosynthesis is good source for green environment approach towards the synthesis of metal nanoparticles and has many advantages such as, comfort with which the process can be scaled up and economic feasibility.
