The synthesis, characterization and application of biologically synthesized nanomaterials have become an important branch of nanotechnology. [...] Key Result Aft er exposing the silver to bark extract, rapid reduction of silv er ions was observed leading to the formation of silver nanopar ticles in the solution. UV-VIS spectrum of the aqueous medium containing silver nanoparticles showed absorption peak at arou nd 430 nm.Expand

Figures from this paper

In vitro seed germination and biochemical profiling of Artemisia absinthium exposed to various metallic nanoparticles
TLDR
The MNPs showed higher toxicity level and enhanced secondary metabolites production, total phenolic content, total flavonoid content, antioxidant activity, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and total protein content, while DPPH radical scavenging assay (RSA) was highest in AuNPs treated plantlets. Expand
RESEARCH ARTICLE Green synthesis of calcium carbonate nanoparticles and their effects on seed germination and seedling growth of Vigna mungo (L.). Hepper.
TLDR
The synthesis of CaCO3 (Calcite) nanoparticles using CaCl2 and selected plant species of Boswellia ovalifoliolata (an endemic plant) as the reducing agent shows that the bio- synthesized CCNPs accelerate the seed germination and seedling growth in V. mungo. Expand
Seed germination and biochemical profile of Citrus reticulata (Kinnow) exposed to green synthesised silver nanoparticles.
TLDR
Green synthesised AgNPs enhanced the in vitro germination because of low toxicity and nonfriendly issues and also enhanced antioxidant activity and SOD activity. Expand
Effect of Silver Nanoparticles on Seed Germination of Crop Plants
TLDR
This study showed that exposure to AgNPs caused both positive and negative effects on plant growth and germination, and enhancement in germination percentage values for watermelon and zucchini plants were observed by treatment withAgNPs in comparison with nontreated seeds. Expand
Evaluation of phytotoxic impact of plant mediated silver nanoparticles on seed germination and growth of seedling of Cassia occidentalis
Background: The silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are known for their antimicrobial activity against several pathogens. The AgNPs might entered into the environment that could adversely affect the herbsExpand
Plant growth and diosgenin enhancement effect of silver nanoparticles in Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)
TLDR
The Ag-NP used in the study was found to play dual role of enhancement of both plant growth and diosgenin synthesis, and is of immense application as it opens up development of new methods based on nanoelicitors to enhance the biosynthesis of medicinal natural products in plants. Expand
Phytostimulatory effect of phytochemical fabricated nanosilver (AgNPs) on Psophocarpus tetragonolobus (L.) DC. seed germination: An insight from antioxidative enzyme activities and genetic similarity studies
Abstract Application of nanotechnology in agriculture aims to reduce the usage of plant protection products, improve the cultivation and increase the growth and yield of crop plants. The presentExpand
Minimum inhibitory concentration of nano-silver bactericides for beneficial microbes and its effect on Ralstonia solanacearum and seed germination of Japanese Cucumber (Cucumis sativus)
TLDR
There is an urgent need to determine the highest concentration of NPs which is not detrimental for growth and proliferation of PGPR and nano-silver application at 40 mg l−1 protected seeds from R. solanacearum and improved the rate of seed germination. Expand
The Effect of Silver and Copper Nanoparticles on the Condition of English Oak (Quercus robur L.) Seedlings in a Container Nursery Experiment
TLDR
Oak seedlings treated with CuNPs and AgNPs at 25 ppm were characterised by the highest degree of mycorrhization among all treatments including the control treatment, and no significant difference in powdery mildew disease intensity was observed after NP foliar app lication. Expand
Effect of Silver Nanoparticles (AgNps) Produced by an Endophytic Fungus Fusarium Semitectum Isolated from a Medicinal Plant Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) on Seed Germination
TLDR
Results reveal that 100 and 200μl of AgNps can enhance root and shoot germination while, higher concentration ofAgNps showed Phytotoxicity revealing that dose dependency will have good effect on overall plant growth. Expand
