SILVER NANO – A MAGIC WORLD (A SMALL REVIEW ON BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS)
Kantipriya Kondala* and Dr. D. Sarvamangala
Here we report a small review on synthesis of silver nanoparticles by plant materials. Different materials like leaves, flowers, fruits etc. which are ecofriendly were used for the production of silver nanoparticles is became essential. Silver nanoparticles are found to be very effective against bacteria, fungi and viruses. Vast literature is available which shows evidence that silver nanoparticles can directly attack and destroy the cell membrane of bacteria and kills. Depending upon their size, shape, structure and other properties like PH, temperature and organic molecules present in the plant extracts increases the stability of the particle. The components of the plant materials help in the size reduction which increases the surface area of the particle and leads to enhance the antibacterial activity.
Keywords: Broad spectrum antibacterial, biomedical applications, UV-VIS Spectroscopy, XRD, FTIR.
