Bombax ceiba thorn extract mediated synthesis of silver nanoparticles: Evaluation of anti - Staphylococcus aureus activity

Roshan Telrandhe*, Debarshi Kar Mahapatra , Manish A. Kamble
The current research aimed at fabricating plant extract mediated biosynthesized silver nanopar-ticles (AgNPs) utilizing thorn extract of Bombax ceiba (TEBC). The synthesized AgNPs was characterized by UV spectroscopy where the surface plasmonic resonance peak (SPR) was located at 222 nm. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies demonstrated that the morphology of fabricated nanomaterials was primarily cylindrical of average size of 20-30 nm with some spindles of size >50 nm. The anti-microbial evaluation against Staphylococcus aureus revealed that AgNPs exhibited notable activity with ZOI of 27.2 mm at MIC of 25 μg/mL. The outcome of this research evidently signified that the biofabricated AgNPs using TEBC may be a new greener approach or technology to formulate anti-bacterial nanodrugs in future.
