Green Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles Using Achyranthes Bidentata Leaf Extract and its Larvicidal Activity

Usha C [3] | Saishree M | Gladys Angelin Rachel D


Abstract: Development of eco-friendly process for the synthesis of nanoparticles is one of the main steps in the area of nanotechnology research. One of the options to achieve this objective is to use natural biological processes. In the context of the current drive, this manuscript describes ways of synthesizing silver nanoparticles by using leaf extract of Achyranthes bidentata. The characteristics of the obtained silver nanoparticles were studied using Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) & Fourier transform Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). EDX analysis revealed the complete inorganic composition of the synthesized nanoparticles. SEM provided further insight into the morphology and size details of the silver nanoparticles. Furthermore, the synthesized nanoparticles were examined for toxic effects on the mortality of fourth instar larvae of Aedes aegypti and found to exhibit significant larvicidal activity. This method is considered as an innovative alternative approach using green nanochemistry technique to control vector parasites.
