Background: Chrysanthemum indicum is an Indian flowering plant within the family Asteraceae and genus Chrysanthemum. The Chrysanthemum flower is being used to treat chest pain(angina) high blood pressure, fever, cold, headache, dizziness and swelling. This plant is used to treat prostate cancer too. The Chrysanthemum flower is used as a tea in East and Southeast Asia. Therefore, this study investigates the synthesis of silver nanoparticles from aqueous extract of Chrysanthemum indicum and its characterization. Phytochemical analysis was carried out qualitatively and quantitatively to find various compounds present in the flower extract. Characterization of Silver nanoparticles was carried out through UV-vis spectrometry, FT-IR, XRD, TEM, Zeta potential sizer, FESEM and EDX. The Silver Nanoparticles were in crystalline irregular shape in size from 71 nm to 180 nm. The UV-Vis Spectroscopy peak was observed at 436 nm. The PDI value is 0.731, it indicates good monodispersed and zeta potential indicates the capping of Silver Nanoparticles by negatively charged groups. The particles size of Silver Nanoparticles was in the range of 36nm to 180nm. The mean value of distribution is 211nm. TEM analysis reveals that the synthesized nanoparticles are polycrystalline, polydisperse in nature and spherical in shape. The FTIR analysis showed the presence of alcohols, phenols, carboxylic acids, primary amines, aliphatic amines, aromatics, and alkyl halides groups.
