Abstract : A rising demand for nanoparticles have urged due to their various applications in Electronics, Chemistry, Energy and Medicine. Traditionally metallic nanoparticles are synthesized by wet chemical methods; however these methods have drawbacks such as use of toxic solvents and hazardous byproducts. Present investigation deals with a cost effective and eco-friendly method for green synthesis of Silver nanoparticles from 0.5 M AgNO3 solution, using leaf extract of Solanum torvum as a reducing, as well as capping agent. Synthesized nanoparticles were characterized using UV-Visible spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and SEM. Further these biosynthesized nanoparticles were tested and proven to have remarkable antimicrobial activity against bacterial strains.

Keywords : Green synthesis, AgNO3, XRD, SEM, Solanum torvum.
