Uniform silver nanoparticles have been prepared through the chemical reduction of silver ions by ethanol in presence of sodium linoleate. TEM micrograph shows a uniform distribution of the particles with an average size of 12 nm. Further, the antimicrobial activity of silver nanoparticles shows that these nanoparticles can be used as effective growth inhibitors against Staphylococcus Basillus, Staphylloccoccus Aureus, and Pseudimonas Aureginosa.
