Synthesis of selenium nanoparticles using Allium sativum extract and analysis of their antimicrobial property against gram positive bacteria
Jay Vyas and Shafkat Rana
Plant extract from Allium Sativum extract was used for the synthesis of selenium nanoparticles from sodium selenite solution. Selenium nanoparticles characterized by using UV-Visible (UV-VIS) spectrophotometer, Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform spectroscopy (FTIR) and Energy dispersive X-Ray spectroscopy (EDAX). The selenium nanoparticles synthesized by Allium sativum were observed as hollow and spherical particles in size ranging 8-52nm which is found more stable than two months. Antimicrobial activity of the selenium nanoparticles was performed by well diffusion method against Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis. The selenium nanoparticles synthesized in this process has the efficient antimicrobial activity against pathogenic bacteria.
