Abstract:

The biosynthesis of nanoparticle is widely spreading around researchers. The leaf and flower extract of Musa paradisiaca when subjected to silver nitrate solution shows the colour change from pale yellow to dark brown at room temperature. The siver nanoparticles were identified by UV-Visible spectrophotometer, Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR), Atomic force microscopy (AFM), and X-Ray diffraction (XRD) was performed to calculate the leaf and flower extract of Musa paradisiaca. The silver nanoparticles received showed respectively higher antimicrobial activity against bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli and bacillus cereus in leaf extract of Musa paradisiaca. Hence, the silver nanoparticles is made widely antibiotic and medical science.
