A simple and efficient eco-friendly approach for the biosynthesis of stable, monodisperse silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using Rhododendron dauricum flower extract is described. Different reaction parameters (concentration of plant extract, substrate concentration, pH, temperature and reaction time) were optimized to synthesize AgNPs with controlled properties{}. AgNPs were characterized in terms of synthesis, size distribution (PDI of 0.25), capping functionalities (phenolic compounds) and…
