This letters informs the novel work on aqueous extract of Mukia maderaspatana used for the biotransformation of metallic silver ion into zerovalent silver nanoparticles. This medicinal plant contains medicinal valuable compounds such as polyphenols, flavonoids, Vitamin C, E, proteins and polysaccharides. These medicinal compounds are responsible for the bioreduction of AgNO3 into silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). The synthesised AgNPs were characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy, FTIR, XRD, SEM and TEM analysis. The biosynthesised silver nanoparticle has potential applications in biomedical and biosensor field.
