We explored the application of three different aqueous solutions derived from Black Tea leaf extracts in the synthesis of Au and Ag nanoparticles. The plain tea leaf broth, as well as that containing the ethyl acetate extract of tea leaves, were found to be extremely efficient, leading to rapid formation of stable nanoparticles of various shapes: spheres,(More)
A series of chalcone analogues and some of their derivatives were synthesized and subjected to the mosquito larvicidal study. Chalcones having electron releasing group(s) on either ring A or ring B showed high toxicity. Electron withdrawing group(s), especially at ring B, reduced the activity of chalcones. The activity was abruptly decreased due to(More)
In this paper, we have demonstrated for the first time, the superb efficiency of aqueous extract of dried leaves of mahogany (Swietenia mahogani JACQ.) in the rapid synthesis of stable monometallic Au and Ag nanoparticles and also Au/Ag bimetallic alloy nanoparticles having spectacular morphologies. Our method was clean, nontoxic and environment friendly.(More)
In an attempt to find natural, environmentally benign, green-chemical agents for the synthesis of metal nanoparticles, we have demonstrated for the first time the excellent efficiency of ethanol and water extracts of a natural, non-toxic material, Indian propolis and two of its chemical constituents, pinocembrin and galangin in the rapid synthesis of stable(More)
