  Terminalia cebula Fruit Extract Mediated Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles and their Antimicrobial E
   

There are a number of reports based on the plant and its extract mediated synthesis of nanoparticles. In this present study we have tried to explore this novel approaches for the biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles using plant fruit bodies. The plant, Terminalia Cebula Retz. fruit bodies are used in this study, where the dried fruit body extract were prepared by using different solvents and they were mixed with silver nitrate in order to synthesize silver nanoparticles. The active phytochemicals present in the plant were responsible for the quick reduction of silver ion {Ag(+)} to metallic silver nanoparticles {Ag(0)}. The reduced silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy. The spherical shaped silver nanoparticles were observed. They exhibited a similar behaviour with maximum absorption peaks ranging between 410-430 nm due to characteristic surface plasmon absorption. The antibacterial property of synthesized nanoparticles was observed by Agar Well Diffusion method against different clinically isolated multi-drug resistant gram +ve and gram –ve bacteria. The plant materials mediated synthesis of silver nanoparticles have comparatively rapid and less expensive and wide application to antibacterial therapy in modern medicine.
