GREEN SYNTHESIS OF SILVER NANOPARTICLES FROM COUROUPITA GUIANENSIS AUBL. FLOWER PETAL EXTRACT AND ITS ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY

Nikhitha K. P, Navyashree H. T

Abstract

Nanoparticles are eco-friendly approach for green synthesis of nanoparticles using natural plant extract is gaining a notable importance now a days. The present study deals with the synthesis of silver nanoparticles using Couroupita guianesis Aubl petal extract. The complete reduction of silver ions was observed after 48hrs of reaction at 30°C under shaker condition. The formulation of silver nanoparticles was confirmed by UV-Visible spectroscopy, XRD and SEM analysis. The antifungal activity evaluate against Aspergillus niger and Rhizopus stolonifer. The antibacterial activity evaluated against E.coli and B.subtilis.
