Fight Bacteria Using Silver Nanoparticles
Nature has established numerous mechanisms for the synthesis of nano- and micro-length inorganic materials, culminating in the growth of a relatively young and mostly unknown subject of nanomaterial biosynthesis research. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPS), on the other hand, have been created to be the most straightforward due to their remarkable antibacterial action. The main goal is to improve specific approaches for synthesizing noble NPS with a specific size, shape, desired composition, and well-ordered disparity that influence their physical, chemical, catalytic, optical, magnetic, electronic, and electrical properties, making them ideal candidates for environmental, biomedical, and biotechnological applications. The trapping of Ag+ ions on the protein surface as a result of electrostatic interactions between silver ions and proteins in plant material extract has been postulated as bio-reduction of Ag. Surface-binding of the engineered nanoparticles (NPs) to bacteria, ion release, and the creation of high oxidative stress all aid the antibacterial action of the synthetic NPs. In this review, various plant-mediated processes and characterization methodologies for the synthesis and confirmation of AgNPs were investigated. The antibacterial activity of AgNPs has been widely investigated, and it has been established that AgNPs antibacterial activity against a variety of bacteria allows for promising therapies for a variety of infectious bacterial disorders.
