Title : BIOGENIC SILVER NANOPARTICLES FROM FICUS RELIGIOSA BARK EXTRACT: ANTIBACTERIAL POTENTIAL AGAINST XANTHOMONAS CAMPESTRIS MALVACEARUM.
S. A. Shinde and S. S. Patil*

Abstract :

In the present study, silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized from aqueous bark extracts of Ficus religiosa and investigated for antibacterial potential. The spectrum of UV–Visible of the prepared Ag-NPs showed an absorption peak at 430 nm due to the excitation of surface plasmon resonance (SPR). The MIC of biosynthesized AgNPs against Xanthomonas campestris malvacearum, the plant pathogen bacteria was determined and was found to be effective at 0.060 mg/ml. The result of antibacterial activities showed that biosynthesized Ag-NPs had an inhibiting activity against Xanthomonas campestris malvacearum bacteria, where the inhibition zone was 25 mm in diameter.
