Title : Plant-mediated synthesis of eco-friendly silver nano-particles consisting double-barrelled effect


Nanotechnology had tremendous impact on medical science and has resulted in phenomenal progress in the field of drug delivery and diagnostics. A metal is considered biocompatible when it is accepted by the body without rejection reaction, Not toxic, Inert or stable. Gold and silver are precious metals that have been used by people. Nowadays, antimicrobial effects are intensively studied due to an enormously increasing bacterial resistance against excessively and repeatedly used classical antibiotics. Inorganic and organic nanostructures, nanoparticles and nanocomposites with different shapes, sizes, and consisting of various metal, metal compound, semiconductor materials, organic materials are finding increasing application in a diverse range of medical industry fields.

Plant-mediated synthesis of nanomaterials has been increasingly gaining popularity due to its eco-friendly nature and cost effectiveness. In the present study, we synthesized silver (Ag) nanoparticles using medicinal plants of blumea lacera as bioreducing agents. This method allowed the synthesis of nanoparticles, which was confirmed by ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometry and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Also synthesized Ag nanoparticles using  fresh leaves of blumea lacera were then evaluated for its antimicrobial activity, particularly against the growth of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria.
