Nanotechnology is one of the most active researches nowadays in modern material science and technology. Eco friendly methods of
green mediated synthesis of nanoparticles are the present research in
the limb of nanotechnology. The present work leads to the synthesis of
Silver nanoparticles from 1mM AgNO3 solution through aqueous leaf extract of Muntingia calabura as reducing as well as capping agent.
Synthesized nanoparticles are characterized under UV-Vis spectroscopy at the range of 350-420nm.The chemical groups studied using FT-IR analysis. Green synthesized silver nanoparticles have been
investigated against Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, and
Pseudomonas aeruginosa by the Kirby-Bauer diffusion method. Based on the result obtained it can be said that the plant resources can efficiently used in the production of silver nanoparticles and it could
be utilized in various fields such as biomedical, nanotechnology and so on.
