Abstract


Silver nanoparticles can be synthesized by using biological, chemical, physical methods and also by  employing of different kinds of reducing agents. However the physical and  chemical methods employed are expensive and the reagents used are harmful. The present method deals with biological green synthesis of silver nanoparticles which  are  then studied for their reaction time and characterization. The silver nitrate solution is reduced using concentrate of kinnow variety of hybrid mandarin citrus plant fruit readily available in markets of Maharashtra, India. The natural fruit extract is added to the solution of Silver Nitrate  which yields silver nanoparticles. The silver nanoparticles  (AgNPs) are characterized by UV Spectrometer and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) technique. This work proves the efficacy of biomaterials for the  synthesis  of nanoparticles obeying the rules of green chemistry.
