Description:

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.

Purpose/Objective:

Sent for publication to American Chemical Society (ACS) journal, ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering.
