Abstract:-Silver had been identified as a harmless, safe,in-organic compound and had been used as an anti-bacterial/anti-fungal agent over decades. Silver had extensive application in various domains including pharmaceutical and chemical industries especially in nanoparticle form due to its efficient activity. The size of the nanoparticles varies from 1-100nm. There is numerous method available for the formulation of nanoparticles but they are not convenient and economic and also the reactives used for formulation of silver nanoparticles can cause ecological impairment. presently the researchers had a thirst in this area by a formulation of nanoparticles from naturally available resources in a most effective manner and also is an economic way. This article precise the various green-mediated formulation of silver nanoparticles and their morphology characterization, anti-microbial activity.
Key Words: Harmless, Nanoparticle, green-mediated, anti-microbial, Economic, morphology characterization
The term nanotechnology is characterised as structure creation, characterization, and application by changing its size and shape, commonly, the size of the nanoparticles ranges from 10-100nm in diameter. It is broadly classified into two types as natural and inorganic nanoparticles The nanoparticles silver, gold, titanium, zinc and copper are grouped into organic metals and the carbon nanotubes and quantum dots are grouped into in-organic metals. Among these various nanoparticles, silver nanoparticle(AgNPs) had a unique attraction due to its metallic and biochemical activity. AgNPs also used in various applications including pharma-industry, Biotechnological, and Food industry in versatile research approaches. During Centuries, before the evidence of penicillin activity, silver had been used as a therapeutic agent. As the silver comes in nanosize (less than
100) due to their size reduction its shows considerable activity against different microorganisms besides Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. In recent years the silver nanoparticles also had a great focus in the agricultural field it was used as a fertilizer as well as pesticides.Due to their nano-size, the particles can easily pass through the cuticle of the plant and showed a
controlled realized activity.there are diverse methods available for the formulation of nanoparticles (physical, chemical, microbial). But they are not cost-effective and also the chemicals and microbes used for the formulation of silver nanoparticles cause harm to the ecosystem. In the development of the field of nanotechnology, the researcher had used various naturally available resources for the formulation of nanoparticles, for example, oil-cake, leaf extract, fruit extract acts as a reduction agent and capping agent. The nanoparticles synthesized by thesis methods show a prominent activity and also it becomes cost-effective compared to other chemical and microbial formulation. The researchers reported that the naturally available phytochemical compounds for example Alkaloids, flavonoid, terpenoids, saponin, etc.., present in the extract act as a reduction agent that reduces the metallic silver into a metal nanoparticle.Silver nanoparticles also used for biofilm formation and in wastewater treatment for heavy metals removal and also for the micro-organism trapping to purify the water for various utilizing activities.
