Abstract
A basic need in the field of nanotechnology is the development of reliable and eco-friendly techniques for synthesis of metal nanoparticles. To accomplish this need the plant system has emerged as an efficient living factory for synthesis of metal nanoparticles. The synthesis of metal nanoparticles using plants is non-toxic, fast, takes place at ambient temperature and low cost. A variety of plants and plant organs (leaf, stem, root and bark) and plant enzymes have shown the successful synthesis of metal nanoparticles. In the present investigation AgNO3 mediated nanoparticles were synthesized using the leaf extracts of Priva cordifolia (L. F.) Druce. belonging to the family Verbenaceae and it was characterized by UV-VIS spectrum, X-Ray Diffraction studies, EDX and SEM analysis. Color change, SEM, EDX and XRD analysis confirmed the stability of synthesized AgNPs. The antimicrobial potential and wide applications of AgNPs in different fields could be analyzed in future.
