|Keywords:||Antimicrobial;Biosynthetic approach;FTIR;Nanoparticles;Tridax procumbens|
|Abstract:||A simple and eco-friendly method for the synthesis of biogenic nanoparticles (NP’s) using an aqueous solution of T. procumbens fresh plant extract (leaf and stem) as a bioreductant is reported. The prepared biogenic nanoparticles were well characterized using U.V. visible spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy. The particles were confirmed to be elemental crystal by X-ray diffraction. The potential applications of biosynthesized nanoparticles as antimicrobial (antibacterial and antifungal) against pathogens Escherichia coli, Vibrio cholerae, Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus were demonstrated.|
