Abstract

The biological process with the ability to study the shape of particles produced would therefore be a limelight of modern nanotechnology. The bacterial strain Escherichia coli, used for the biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles were investigated. These silver nanoparticles were characterized by means of UV-vis spectroscopy, particle size analyzer. The nanoparticles exhibited maximum absorbance at 400 nm in UV-vis spectroscopy corresponding to the plasmon resonance of silver nanoparticles.
