Synthesis of silver nanoparticles and its effect on soil bacteria
AbstractSilver Nanoparticles were synthesized from Silver nitrate with the help of metal reductant Trisodium citrate by Wet Chemical method. The antimicrobial activity of the Silver Nanoparticles was investigated against the Soil Bacteria isolated from rhizospheric regions through in vitro and in situ. In these tests, the agar plates were used and the Silver Nanoparticles of various concentrations were supplemented. As results, the Soil Bacteria were inhibited at the low concentration of silver Nanoparticles in both in vitro and in situ. These results suggest that the Silver Nanoparticles can be used as effective growth inhibitors in various bacteria, making them applicable to various antibacterial control systems. Keywords: Silver Nitrate, Wet Chemical synthesis, Antibacterial activity, In situ.
