ABSTRACT:
In the recent decades, increased development of green synthesis of nanoparticles was inevitable because of its incredible applications in all fields of science. So we present a simple and eco-friendly biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles using Cocculus hirsutus leaf extract as reducing agent. The aqueous silver ions when exposed to leaf extract were reduced and resulted in silver nanoparticles whose average size was 139nm. The silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Visible spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-Ray Diffraction spectroscopy (XRD) and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) techniques. Furthermore these biologically synthesized nanoparticles were found to be highly effective against human pathogens.
