OPTIMIZING GREEN ITINERARY FOR SILVER NANOPARTICLES USING BOX-BEHENKEN EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN
Maurya Pooja* and Dr. Itishree Vaidya
Silver nanoparticles by virtue of stronger optical absorption have facilitated the development of biomedical sciences and engineering. The green bio-reduction approach was followed for synthesizing silver nanoparticles. Box-Behenken experimental design was employed as statistical method for optimization of synthetic experimental design. The method was optimized with respect to wavelength maxima obtained from UV-Vis spectroscopy analysis as a response. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed that silver nanoparticles could be effectively synthesized by tuning significant parameters of greener route.
Keywords: Silver nanoparticles, green synthesis, optimization, Box-Behenken design.
