Abstract :

In the present paper, green synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles (Ag NPs) was performed from aqueous silver nitrate using the reducing agents of Datura metel L., leaves extract of partition aqueous fraction. The change of color from colorless to dark brown was visually identifying the formation of Ag NPs. The synthesized Ag NPs were characterized by UV-vis spectrophotometer, FTIR spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. From the UV-vis absorption of the wavelength region at 450nm was confirm the synthesis of Ag NPs. FTIR spectrum results to indicates the presence of phytochemical functional groups to capping the NPs. XRD analysis of Ag NPs, the four peaks were identified by face centered cubic structure of the nanoparticles. The mean sizes of nanoparticles were calculated by Debye-Schrrer equation
