Title : Biogenic synthesis of nanoparticles and its antifungal and antibacterial applications


Science has changed due to the ability to manipulate matter at the molecular level. Materials having a minimum diameter of 1 to 100 nm are among the many materials referred to as nanoparticles. Combining organic and inorganic elements to produce microscopic structures is the large field of nanobiotechnology. The production of metal nanoparticles utilizing biological processes that are ecologically benign, sustainable, and bioinspired is one of the most fascinating features of modern nanoscience technology. With much effort, metal nanoparticles have been produced using various biological systems, including fungus, bacteria, and plant extracts. The geometric form, size, and stability of nanoparticles may be controlled by varying the quantity of metal salts and plant extracts, as well as the pH, temperature, and incubation duration. This work describes the synthesis of palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) in an environmentally friendly, economical, quick, and simple manner utilizing Rosa damascena leaf as a capping and reducing agent. The synthesized PdNPs were characterized through UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). UV studies confirmed the presence of PdNPs by their characteristic SPR peak at 364 nm. Synthesized PdNPs were spherical and polydisperse in shape where the size of nanoparticles was ∼ 20 nm. These green synthesized PdNPs exhibited significant activity against both antibacterial as well as antifungal species. The antibacterial activity of biosynthesized PdNPs from R.damascena leaf extract was investigated. The antibacterial activity was tested using the agar well diffusion method against the selected bacterial species of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The antifungal activity of PdNPs from R.damascena leaf extract was tested using the agar well diffusion method against Candida ablicans, Aspergillus niger, and Aspergillus flavus.
