GREEN SYNTHESIS AND APPLICATIONS OF SILVER NANO PARTICLES
Princy P. Mathew*, Neetha Thankachen and Dr. Elessy Abraham
The topic focused on a review of the green synthesis and applications of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), which can be utilized in biomedical research. An environment friendly extracellular biosynthetic technique for the production of the silver nanoparticle has been studied. The reducing agents used to produce the nanoparticles were from aqueous extracts made from the leaves of various plants. The nanoparticles were characterized by UV-visible Spectrophotometer. The nanoparticles were found have the size ranges from 160-180 nm. The most obvious merits of green synthesis are the increased biocompatibility of the resulting silver nanoparticles and the ease with which the reactions can be carried out.
Keywords: green synthesis and applications of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs).
