Abstract: In this study, the green synthesis of nanoparticles by using both fresh and dry marine macro alga of Nizimuddiniazanardinii was investigated. The Surface Plasmon Resonance bands of silver nanoparticles obtained were characterized by using UV-Vis spectrophotometer with characteristic absorption peaks at 413 and 414 nm. Maximum synthesis of silver nanoparticles was attained within 30 min at pH 8.5, 70°C and 1mM concentration of AgNO3. Also maximum synthesis of silver nanoparticles reveals by characteristic absorption peaks at 432 and 441 nm within 2h at pH 7.5, 70°C and 1mM Ag2SO4. The SEM images demonstrated these nanoparticles as spherical structures with average size of 60 nm. EDX study showed the major signal of silver metal with concentration of 50.06% in the fresh seaweed. The structure of Ag-NPs was determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD). FTIR showed that the function groups of hydroxyl, carbonyl and amine compounds in Nizimuddiniazanardinii extracts were involved in the reduction of aqueous AgNO3. This method of Ag-NPs synthesis is environmentally safe with potential utilization in biomedical and agriculture applications.
