Studies on antibacterial and antifungal activity of silver nanoparticles synthesized using Artocarpus heterophyllus leaf extract

A simplistic method for synthesis of colloidal silver nanoparticles was developed using leaf extract of Artocarpus heterophyllus. The biostabilized silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Visible Spectroscopy, SEM, EDS, XRD and FTIR. The silver nanoparticles demonstrated potent antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and… CONTINUE READING
