Synthesis of Silver and Gold Nanoparticles Using Antioxidants from Blackberry, Blueberry, Pomegranate, and Turmeric Extracts
Nadagouda, M., N. Iyanna, J. Lalley, C. Han, D. Dionysiou, AND R. Varma. Synthesis of Silver and Gold Nanoparticles Using Antioxidants from Blackberry, Blueberry, Pomegranate, and Turmeric Extracts. ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering. ACS Publications, Washington, DC, 2(7):1717-1723, (2014).
Greener synthesis of Ag and Au nanoparticles is described using antioxidants from blackberry, blueberry, pomegranate, and turmeric extracts. The synthesized particles were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high resolution TEM (HR-TEM), particle size analysis, UV-Vis spectroscopy and thermo gravimetric analysis. The XRD patterns indicated the formation of Ag and Au nanoparticles and the results are in line with UV plasma resonance peaks.
