Abstract


Biosynthesis, characterizations and applications of nanoparticles have become an important branch of nanotechnology nowadays. In this paper, green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using the alcoholic extract of Clerodendron infortunatum as a reducing and stabilizing agent, has been discussed. This biosynthetic method is simple, cost-effective and reproducible. Formation of AgNPs was established by X-ray diffraction, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, UV-visible spectroscopy techniques. The phytochemicals responsible for nano-transformation were principally phenolics, tannins and organic acids present in the leaves. Further, AgNPs were used for antibacterial treatment of cotton fabrics which was tested by antibacterial activity assessment of textile material by agar diffusion method against Staphylococcus aureus. The colloidal AgNPs have been soaked onto cotton fabrics and studied for their effective antibacterial activity toward Staphylococcus aureus which showed remarkable antibacterial activity.
