|Title:||Synthesis and characterization of silver nanoparticles using water-soluble starch and its antibacterial activity on Staphylococcus aureus|
|Abstract:||The eco-friendly biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), using starch as reducing agent, was addressed in this work. Starch solutions with three different concentrations (0.5, 1.0, and 1.5%w/v), heated at 90 degrees C for 12h and stabilized with 100 mu L of NaOH 0.1M were used during the synthesis process. AgNPs were characterized by UV-visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometry, SEM equipped with energy dispersive spectrometer and TEM. The antibacterial activity of the AgNPs was evaluated on Staphylococcus aureus using the disc diffusion technique (Kirby-Bauer method) relative to enrofloxacin antibiotic. Solutions containing AgNPs developed a yellow color and presented UV-Vis spectra characteristic for AgNPs, with surface plasmon resonance peaks between 411 and 414nm. Spherical-shape AgNPs were observed by TEM with sizes between 10 and 30nm. These silver nanoparticles displayed an antimicrobial activity against S. aureus in colloidal state and films.|
