Abstract

In this present study fruit peel of three different plants Citrus sinensis, Punica granatum, Mangifera indica were taken to investigate in their potential for synthesizing silver nanoparticle and analyses antibacterial activity. There is an increasing commercial demand for nanoparticles due to their wide applicability in various areas such as electronics, catalysis, chemistry, energy and medicine. It is gaining attention due to its cost effective, eco-friendly and large scale production possibilities. The formation of silver nanoparticles was observed by change of colour from transparent yellow to brown colour by addition the fruit peel extracts. The characterization studied was done by UV-Vis spectroscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). All the three fruits peel synthesized silver nanoparticles show good antibacterial activity against clinically important pathogen Escherichia coli.
