INTRODUCTION : Silver metal has a variety of applications in nanoparticles. AgNPs are most frequently used for their medical, food-packaging, antimicrobial, anti-cancer, and wound-healing capabilities. Although spherical nanoparticles are typically utilised, thin sheets, diamonds, and octagons are other frequent geometries of AgNPs.
AIM : The study's objective was to investigate the cytotoxic effects of amla fruit seed-derived silver nanoparticles (AgNPs).
MATERIALS AND METHODS : To gather and synthesise amla fruit seed extract - *To produce Silver Nanoparticles using amla fruit seed extract *Brine shrimp lethality assay was used to test the cytotoxic effects of produced AgNPs.
RESULTS : The green hue of the plant extract combines with the silver nitrate solution to produce brown colour, which denotes the formation of AgNPs. The results of the present investigation show that the graph peaked at a wavelength of 460 nm. As a result, it can be inferred from the present study that the amount of cytotoxicity was reduced by half as we used less concentration. Therefore, if the concentration is greater than 50%, it can be applied to biomedical purposes.
CONCLUSION : As a result, it can be inferred from the present research that biosynthesized AgNPs from amla seed fruit yields promising outcomes for biological applications. The synthesis of AgNPs from amla fruit seed extract was demonstrated by an absorption peak at 460 nm in the UV-vis spectrum.
