    i want to build a driver circuit( without using driver IC) for two mosfet that are to be placed at tranformer secondary winding of LLC resonant converter instead of normal pn diode.Mosfets are required to turnon and turn off alternatively(much like full bridge rectifier) with changing polarity of center tapped transformer (24 volt secondary )...any idea or any webpage to tell how to make this driver circuit ?

    It appears you want to build a synchronous rectifier. Have you searched on mosfet drivers? Almost every mosfet manufacturer has an application note on the subject. Here is one from Texas Instruments:

    Figures 9 and 10 do not use IC drivers.
