Silver Nanoparticles from Green Sources: a Spectroscopic and Antibacterial Perspective

EasyChair Preprint no. 11149

6 pagesDate: October 23, 2023


The synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) from green sources has gained significant attention due to its environmentally friendly nature and potential applications, particularly in the field of antibacterial research. This abstract provides an overview of the synthesis of AgNPs using green methods, their spectroscopic characterization, and their antibacterial properties. Green synthesis methods harness natural sources such as plant extracts, microorganisms, and other eco-friendly agents to reduce silver ions into AgNPs. These approaches are preferred over conventional chemical methods due to their sustainability and reduced ecological impact. This review explores various green synthesis routes and the key factors influencing the synthesis process, including reaction conditions and choice of biological agents. Spectroscopic analysis, including UV-Vis spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), plays a crucial role in characterizing the synthesized AgNPs. These techniques enable the determination of AgNP size, shape, crystal structure, and stability. Additionally, Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is employed to identify the presence of bioactive compounds from the green sources, which may impart unique characteristics to the nanoparticles.
