The investigations on the synthesis and various applications of the bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) nanoparticle have gained great attention in the present era due to its wide range of applications. Continued efforts are made by researchers to develop devices based on nanostructured materials. In this review paper, different methods for the synthesis of nanostructured Bi2Te3 are presented. Dependence of properties based on the synthesis methods is reviewed as well. Both physical and chemical methods are applied to get different forms of nano compounds. The merits and demerits of both methods are also explained in this review. Briefly, the different synthesis methods of bismuth telluride nanoparticles and its unique properties are critically discussed in this overview.
