Synthesis of silver nanoparticles using seeds of Nigella sativa as a capping agent was evaluated in this study. Different concentrations of the aqueous extract of N. sativa with silver nitrate solution were exposed to sunlight; as a force for acceleration of the formulation. Then the silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Vis, scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques. Antibacterial activity of the nanoparticles was investigated against Staphylococcus…

It has been demonstrated that Ag NPs arrest the growth and multiplication of many bacteria such as Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, Citrobacter koseri, Salmonella typhii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Vibrio parahaemolyticus and fungus.

Silver nanoparticles in the environment: Sources, detection and ecotoxicology.

Influence of particle size and dielectric environment on the dispersion behaviour and surface plasmon in nickel nanoparticles.

The dominant influence of surfactants, additives, particles size and shape on the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) was found and SPR is considerably sensitive to the dielectric environment in addition to size andshape.
