Abstract

In this work, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized rapidly and eco-friendlily using the extract of Mulberry leaves and aqueous solution of silver nitrate without any toxic chemical [1,2]. The Mulberry leaves extract acts as both reducing agent and stabilizing agent. The UV-Vis spectrum shows peak at 430 nm. The TEM image of synthesized AgNPs sample shows spherical shaped particles whose size range from 15 to 20 nm. TEM image of nano silver solution sample synthesized by microwave assisted method shows nearly spherical particles with an average particle size of 10 nm. The absorption UV-vis spectrum of silver nanoparticles synthesized by microwave assisted method (AgNPsmw) shows a sharp absorption band around 415 nm. After two month storage of AgNPsmw, the absorption spectrum of AgNPsmw was taken again. The UV-Vis spectrum shows negligible peak changes of silver nanoparticles have occurred after two months of storage. The synthesized AgNPs material could be used as an antimicrobial, used in the field of textile and in wastewater treatment.
