Author(s): Mohammad Ebrahim Khalilzadeh Khoshkhoo, Fereshteh Nematollahi
An aqueous extract of Anthemis tinctoria was used for green synthesis of silver nanoparticles. The extract of Anthemis tinctoria was prepared with maceration method and the extract was used for preparing silver nanoparticles in AgNO3 aqueous solution. The related tests showed that the extract contains flavonoids.
Synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, infra-red spectroscopy, X - ray diffraction spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. To confirm the formation of silver nanoparticles, the ultraviolet- visible absorption spectrum was obtained in 420-450 nm and showed that silver nanoparticles were produced. The average size of obtained silver nanoparticles was found to be average 34.77 nm in face center cubic crystalline structure.
