Green Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles using Kaempferia Galanga Extract and Study of its Antibacterial Effect

Dr. Renjusha S. | Gayathri Santhosh Kumar


Abstract: Biogenic synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using plants has become a promising substitute to the conventional chemical synthesis method. Silver has been known to have effective bactericidal properties for centuries. Nowadays, silver based topical dressings have been widely used as a treatment for infection in burns, open wounds, and chronic ulcer. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are one of the most vital and fascinating nanomaterials among several metallic nanoparticles that are involved in biomedical applications. AgNPs play an important role in nanoscience and nanotechnology, particularly in nanomedicine. This study reports a facile, eco - friendly, reliable, and cost-effective synthesis of silver nanoparticles using Kaempferia galanga extract and their antibacterial activity. The biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Visible spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray diffraction pattern (XRD).
