Background: The synthesis of metal Nanoparticles is a growing area of research interest due to its potential in the applications and development of advanced technologies. Here we have stressed on the Facile green synthesis approach that connects the nanotechnology and biotechnology.
Methods: The method involves use of biological reducing agent cum stabilizing agent (capping agent). A comparative account of particle dimension and surface properties of the synthesized nano particles using Broccoli (Brassicaoleracea var.italica) extract is also presented.
Results: The reduction process used in the synthesis was simple and convenient to handle and monitored by UV--Vis spectroscopy showing the absorbance maxima of various samples at 322nm, 496nm and 536nm using different solvents. The presence of active proteins and phenolic groups present in biomass before and after reduction was identified by FTIR.
Conclusion: The crystalline morphology and size of the Nanoparticles were examined by TEM, SEM and X-ray diffraction studies, which showed the average particle size of Silver Nanoparticles in the range of 40- 50 nm as well as revealed their FCC structure.
