Cleanup Textile Azo Dye Pollution by Using Silver Nanoparticles of Bacteria Isolated From Shrimp Shell Contaminated Soil in Thoothukudi Coast

Authors(2) :- G. Anusiya, G. Flora

Cryogenic silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) synthesized by using bacteria (Acinetobacter sp. and Bacillus sp.) isolated from shrimp shell contaminated soil in Tuticorin coast and it was confirmed by UV–visible spectroscopy. AgNPs show a peak around 540nm (Acinetobacter sp.) and 510nm (Bacillus sp.). Further the efficiency of synthesized AgNPs was assessed for the decolorization of azo dyes such as Congo red, Acid Orange 5 and Black 7984. Decolourization assay was measured in the terms of percentage decolorization using UV- Spectrophotometer. The results revealed that bio-synthesized silver nanoparticles using the selected bacteria were found to be negligible in degrading the selected dyes.
