SYNTHESIS OF SILVER NANOPARTICLES FROM MEDICINAL PLANTS AND THEIR ANTIMICROBIAL EFFECTS ON BACTERIAL
Medicinal plants like Neem, Tulsi, Turmeric, and Marigold have been used since time unknown to heal wounds and are well known for their antimicrobial benefits. In this project it has been tried to extract or synthesize silver nanoparticles from the plants and the resultant has been put to trial to find out its effectiveness in violating harmful microbe populations. The target population was Helicobacterpylori collected from urban sludge, slurry, and cow dung which often contaminates the potable water supplies and creates gastric problems like heartburn, bloating, and even ulcers in the gut if left untreated. The objective is to combine nanotechnology with familiar plant species and to obtain and exploit the silver nanoparticles from the same. These findings can be a breakthrough in creating products that will serve as an easily-available, cost-effective, nature-friendly replacement of antimicrobial chemicals.
