Abstract: Biogenic synthesis of Ag and ZnO nanoparticles has been proposed as an environmental friendly and cost effective method. Curcuma longa tuber extract was used to reduce silver nitrate and zinc acetate to Ag NPs and ZnO NPs. The extract acts as each reducing capping agent. Synthesis process be standardized by modifying various parameters like salt concentrations, C. longa tuber extract concentration, and temperature and incubation period. The formation of Silver and ZnO NPs was observed among color transition. The morphology of the amalgamate Ag and ZnO NPs be characterized with various experimental techniques (FESEM, TEM). The face-centered cuboidal structure of Ag and ZnO NPs be studied using X-ray optical phenomenon. Further Ag in addition to ZnO NPs were tested for antibacterial and anticancer activities.
Keywords: Curcuma longa tuber extract, Ag and ZnO NPs, antibacterial, anticancer activities.
