Plant-mediated Biosynthesis of Silver Nanoparticles and Evaluation of Their Antibacterial Activities

Authors(5) :-Munesh Kumar, Ravi Berwal, Minakshi Lalit, Rawal Kumar, Rajesh Thakur

Aqueous seed extract of Syzygium cumini (SCE) was used for the synthesis of silver (Ag) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were characterized with the help of UV–vis spectrophotometer, Particle size analyser (PSA), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). UV-Vis spectra of silver nanoparticles shows absorbance peak at 440 nm. The nanoparticles synthesized were relatively spherical in shape with varying sizes. The biosynthesized silver nanoparticles were found to be highly toxic against some human pathogenic bacteria.
