Antioxidant activity and synthesis of silver Nanoparticles using the leaf extract Of limoniaacidissima

2016 International Journal of Pharma and Bio Sciences  
A green synthesis of silver nanoparticles was done using a particular plant extract of Limonia acidissima. Silver nanoparticles were synthesised by the bioreduction of silver nitrate using different concentrations of plant extract, and UV-visible spectral analysis was carried out to confirm the formation of silver nanoparticles. The presence of various phytochemicals like flavonoids, steroids, polyphenols, and terpenoids was investigated by following standard biochemical methods. Later the
