Silver nanoparticles are the glorious metallic material due to their wide applications in the pharmaceutical and industrial sectors. In this study, Curcuma amada rhizome are used for the silver nanoparticle synthesis. C. amada mediated AgNO3 nanoparticles are synthesized by and characterization studies (UV, FTIR, XRD, DLS, SEM and TEM). In UV spectra, three peaks observed at 413, 418 and 995nm confirmed the presence of silver particles in the green synthesized Ag nanoparticles. FTIR spectra exhibited various functional groups (N-H stretching vibrations, alkane, amide stretching, carboxylic acid, stretching and rocking C-C bonds, NH2 stretch and S-S stretch) of the nanoparticles. green synthesized Ag NPs electron microscopic analysis revealed agglomerated irregular shape with homogenously. The crystal plane lattice of the nanoparticles is revealed by XRD. Agglomerated irregular structures of silver nanoparticles with average particle size 32-55nm. Our study concluded that Curcuma amada mediated silver nanoparticles exhibited the nanoparticles properties.
