Biogenic silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been synthesized by using Solanum tuberosum (potato) extract (PE) as a reducing as well as stabilizing agent which is reasonably cheaper, non-toxic and easily available material. The green synthesis of silver nanoparticles has been carried out by very simple method and the nanoparticles were characterized by surface plasmon band as well as TEM measurements. The PE-AgNPs were highly dispersed in the solution and found to be spherical with around 10nm in size. Read More

Biosynthesis of metal nanoparticles is the present research in the limb of nanotechnology which reduces the toxicity of metal nanoparticles. Green chemistry approach emphasizes that the usage of plant material has offered a reliable, simple, nontoxic and eco-friendly that links Nanotechnology and Biotechnology. Increasing environmental concerns over chemical synthesis routes have resulted in attempts to develop bio-mimetic approaches. Read More

Herein, we are reporting for the first time one step biogenic synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) at room temperature by using Ziziphus Jujuba leaf extract as a reducing and stabilizing agent. The process of nanoparticles preparation is green, rapid, environmentally benign and cost effective. The synthesized AgNPs were characterized by means of UV-Vis. Read More

The green synthesis of nanoparticles has received increasing attention due to the growing demand to produce safe, cost-effective, and eco-friendly technology for nanomaterials synthesis. We report on the use of aqueous Croton bonplandianum (Family: Euphorbiaceae, Genus: Croton) leaves extract for the preparation of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) without using any external reducing and stabilizing agent. Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy showed maximum absorbance at 446 nm due to surface plasmon resonance of AgNPs. Read More
