Wound Healing Activities of Green Synthesized Nanoparticles using Green Marine Algae

Meghna Chatterjee

Abstract: Marine algae have the potential for various biological activities, hence the focus is to make a comparative study of different marine algae having biomedical properties with green synthesized silver nanoparticles. In addition to various kinds of metallic nanoparticles applied to biological applications, Ag - NPs are essential and fascinating nanomaterials fundamental to nanoscience and technology, particularly for nanomedicine. For the synthesis of numerous nanomaterials, including metal oxides, hybrids, and materials inspired by biology, green synthesis has emerged as a dependable, environmentally friendly, and sustainable process in the field of materials research. Characterizations using techniques including TEM, EDS, DLS, and FT - IR were done to verify the characteristics and configurations of the silver nanoparticles. Along with - it various kinds of assays are used to find out the different working methods of the respective algae. DPPH and FRAP assays were performed to get insight about antioxidant activity of silver nanoparticles, to check for antimicrobial activity, MIC turbidity test was done. Cell migration in two - dimensional surfaces is measured using the scratch test over time and in response to various treatments. Various in vitro experiments are conducted to evaluate the anti - inflammatory properties of the algae. MTT is used to investigate the cytotoxic effects of marine algae. The biological applications of marine algae are explored, and the most efficient one is elucidated.
