Abstract :

The physical and chemical method employed in production of silver nanoparticles is expensive and the reagents used are toxic. This paper deals with the production of silver nanoparticles using biological compounds by biosynthesis method. Silver nitrate is reduced by the peel extracts of Pomegranate, which act as a reducing agent as well as stabilizing agent due to the presence of biomolecules. The characterization of the silver nanoparticles was done using XRD and FTIR. The approach of fruit-mediated synthesis appears to be cost efficient eco-friendly and easy alternative to conventional methods of silver nanoparticles synthesis.
