Synthesis and characterization of Polyvinyl Alcohol-Polypyrrole-Silver nanocomposite polymer films

The present paper describes the preparation and characterization of Polyvinyl Alcohol-Polypyrrole-Silver Nanocomposite (PVA-PPy-Ag NC) films. The prepared films were conducting, freestanding, flexible, and robust. Silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) were synthesized from an aqueous solution of silver nitrate using trisodium citrate as a reductant. The casting solution for the films was prepared by in-situ chemical oxidative […]

Synthesis and characterization of Silver nanoparticles from fruit extract of Michelia Champaca L.: Their antioxidant and antibacterial activity

Plant mediated synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) is considered as a representative approach in material synthesis for environmental benignity. In this paper, we report an eco-friendly (green) protocol for the preparation of AgNPs using fruit extract of Michelia champaca L. The color change in experimental solution from light brown to dark brown indicates the resonance […]

Biosynthesis of Silver nanoparticles and investigation of genotoxic effects and antimicrobial activity

Health risk assessment of nanomaterials is a new and important area emerging; obtaining nanoparticles by green synthesis method and performing cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and antimicrobial testing is an important endpoint. In vitro studies for nanoparticles (NPs) obtained by the non-toxic method offer many advantages, such as the study of the bioavailability of nanomaterials to sensitive target […]

Synthesis and characterization of Silver nanoparticles from Cinnamomum tamala leaf extract and its antibacterial potential

The novel approach has been carried for the green synthesis of silver nanoparticles using leaf extract of Cinnamomum tamala and silver nitrate solution. The optimal condition for synthesizing Ag-NPs was obtained by varying the leaf extract concentration, temperature, AgNO3 concentration, effect of ratio of leaf extract to AgNO3 solution,pH and reaction time. The formation of […]

Biogenic synthesis and characterization of Silver nanoparticles from seed extract of Spondia mombins and screening of its antibacterial activity

The seed extract of Spondia mombins was used in the biofabrication of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in this study. The biosynthesized AgNPs was characterised using UV-Vis Spectroscopy, FTIR, FESEM, TEM, XRD and EDX. The antimicrobial efficacy of the synthetized AgNPs was evaluated against certain pathogens. The absorption spectrum peaked at 425 nm when the UV analysis […]

Marine endophytic fungi mediated Silver nanoparticles and their application in plant growth promotion in Vigna radiata L.

Seaweeds tend to have the property of acting as a biofertilizer for plants. Endophytes are organisms that are capable of mimicking and producing secondary metabolites similar to the host. In this report, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized from a marine endophytic fungus, Fusarium equiseti which was isolated from marine seaweed and identified using ITS sequencing. […]

Phytofabrication of Silver nanoparticles using Abrus precatorius L Seed extract and their antioxidant and antibacterial activity

The present investigation evaluates the potential of aqueous seed extract of Abrus precatorius L. for the biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). The structure of AgNPs was authenticated by the changes in colour as well as the UV-vis spectroscopy, which showed an absorbance maxima peak at 441 nm. The scanning electron microscope (SEM) investigation proved the […]

Silver nanoparticles dispersed in nematic liquid crystal: an impact on dielectric and electro-optical parameters

AbstractIn the present study, nematic liquid crystal (NLC) 4′-(Octyloxy)-4-biphenylcarbonitrile dispersed with three different concentrations of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) is characterized by electro-optical and dielectric spectroscopy method. The dispersion of Ag NPs into NLC material leads to the change in physical parameters such as dielectric permittivity, photoluminescence, threshold voltage, response time and splay elastic constant.
