Abstract:

Greener way of synthesizing nanoparticles has emerged as an alternative method, as it is eco- friendly and cost effective. The present work investigated the synthesis of silver nanoparticles with the aid of citrus fruit peel extracts (CFPE) under two different conditions such as sun dried and oven dried form. Characterisation of silver nanoparticles was carried out using UV-Visible spectroscopy. The colourless reaction mixture turned brown and displayed UV-Visible spectra characteristic of silver nanoparticles. The present study revealed that silver nanoparticles prepared from sun dried Citrus sinensis and mixed fruit peel extracts showed significant antibacterial activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium which are common food related pathogens.


Keywords: Silver nanoparticles, Citrus fruit peel extracts, Antibacterial activity.
