Characterization of Silver nanoparticles synthesized from Curculigo orchioides extract using UV vis spectroscopy

Nishanthana Murali, Lakshmi T, RajeshKumar.S, Anitha Roy, Geetha RV.


Background: Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are the most broadly used nanomaterials[1,2]. Up to this point silver in the form of metal, metal–protein complexes, and salts has been utilised in medicine mostly as a component of antibacterial drugs.One of the fields in which nanotechnology finds broad applications for nanomedicine, a rising new field which is an outcome of a combination of nanotechnology and medicine. Nanotechnology can improve our understanding of the living cells and molecular level interactions
Aim: To observe the characterisation of silver nanoparticles using Curculigo orchioides using UV visual spectroscopy
Materials and methods: The material of study is Curculigo orchioides extract which is prepared in the laboratory. Then the silver nanoparticles are synthesized and subjected to characterisation assay.
Results and discussion: The results are obtained from the laboratory and the reports are analysed.The images of the extract before and after UV exposure are obtained and the required data are recorded.It was observed that solution of silver nitrate turned brown in addition to seed extract.This shows the formation of Ag NPs.
Conclusion: Scanning electron microscope image of Silver synthesised by Curculigo orchioides extract. The image clearly indicates the particle size range of our nanoparticles to be within 84.5 nm

Key words: SEM ,Silver ,Nanoparticles ,Curculigo ,Synthesis
