Study of synthesis and characterization of silver nanoparticles from Tinospora cordifolia
H Jacena Begum, V Ramamurthy and S Senthil Kumar
The nanoparticle is gaining attention due to its cost effective, ecofriendly and large scale production possibilities. In this present study Tinospora cordifolia was taken to investigate their potential for synthesizing silver nanoparticle. The silver nanoparticles synthesized were confirmed by its change of colour to dark brown due to the phenomenon of surface plasmon resonance. Silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV–vis spectrophotometer, SEM, XRD, AFM and FTIR spectroscopy. Tinospora cordifolia leaf showed great capability to synthesis silver nanoparticle at optimum temperature conditions. The UV absorption peak at 428nm clearly indicates the synthesis of Ag NPs. The SEM, TEM and AFM studies were helpful at deciphering their morphology and distribution. DLS and Zeta potential studies validated the size and charge of the nanoparticles in the colloidal system without any aggregation. The silver nanoparticles have great pharmacological activity.
