A subset of nanobiotechnology is the development of nanotechnology-based instruments for the study of biological processes. Microbial infection is a public health problem. This problem will be carried out with the help of many medicinal plants. In this present investigation the Cerium oxide Nanoparticles were synthesized from the medicinal plant; Punica granatum L peel extract using green synthesis methods, The Prepared Cerium oxide nanoparticles were characterized using Raman spectroscopy analysis. The cubic crystal structure of cerium oxide nanoparticles shows a very strong active base state in the Raman spectrum at 452cm-1. The antifungal activity of Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger was conducted using the prepared Nanoparticles. As per the results obtained, the prepared nanoparticles have high anti-fungal activity which was found to be 14mm and 13mm.
