Author(s): Nandedkar Pushpa H and Khandare Sopan A
Abstract: Nanoparticles are microscopic particles smaller than 100μm. Nanoparticles was synthesized using various metals. The nanoparticles synthesized with silver nitrate was preferred for numerous applications. In the present study wheatgrass was used as herbal medium. Wheatgrass has pharmacological and medicinal properties. The nanoparticles was synthesized by using incubation process. After addition of 1mM AgNO3 in wheatgrass extract, the extract becomes brown indicated the synthesis of nanoparticles. The synthesized silver nanoparticles showed maximum absorption at 420nm indicated the formation of nanoparticles. The synthesized nanoparticles was showed considerable effect on seed germination rate and nodule formation. As well as the synthesized nanoparticles was showed countable antimicrobial activity against gram positive, gram negative and fungus.
