Abstract :

Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing technique, due to its wide application in various fields viz. Medical, Engineering, Chemistry, Biotechnology and Physics etc. In this study, the Silver Nanoparticles were synthesized by using aqueous extract of Caramulla fimiata L. This shrub is generally available in Western Ghat region particularly Sahyadri mountain in Maharashtra. The synthesized Silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV–Visible spectroscopy, FTIR, XRD (X–ray diffraction) and SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy). The UV–Vis spectroscopy shows Plasmon resonance of AgNPs at 452 nm. The X–ray Diffraction analysis show the average particle size is about 18.35 nm. This green synthesis process indicates that it is more convenient method than other chemical process.
