Green Synthesis, Characterization and Antibacterial Study of Ag-Au Bimetallic Nanocomposite using Tea Powder Extract

2020 Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry  
Synthesis of metal nanoparticles using plant extracts is attracted much to the recent researchers due to its simplicity, which integrates chemical technology. Special attention is given to the green synthesis of nanoparticles by easily available plants with an eco-friendly system compared to other conventional methods. Silver-Gold nanocomposite (Ag-Au NCp's) is synthesized by bi reduction of silver nitrate and gold chloride. These metal salts are simultaneously reduced by tea extract to form

The structure and morphology of as-prepared Ag-Au NCp's sample were characterized by employing powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) tool and by Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) tool, respectively. Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectral study was undertaken to know the bonding in the prepared silver sample. Morphology and particle size of the above composite was studied by the Transmission electron microscope (TEM) tool. Energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX) study was undertaken to know the formation of Ag-Au NCp's. Antibacterial activity study is undertaken to know its biological behavior.
