Phyto-assisted Synthesis and Assessment of Properties of Selenium Nanoparticles prepared Using Banana Stem Extracts and Incorporating them in a Mouthwash-A Patent

Author(s): Divij Khullar*, S Rajeshkumar, Nabeel Ahmed


Traditional nanoparticle production procedures involve harmful chemicals, resulting in environmental toxicity. As a result, "green synthesis" will be required. Selenium nanoparticles supplemented with banana stem extract have demonstrated to have strong antibacterial capabilities in previous research. As a result, this study was conducted to investigate selenium's antibacterial characteristics. Selenium is an effective antibacterial agent because it stimulates cell wall breakage due to intracellular material leakage, and it was chosen to manufacture a nanoparticle. Aim: Aim of the study was phyto assisted preparation of nano selenium from banana stem cell and evaluation of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Material and methods: Antimicrobial properties of the nanoparticle were assessed using Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) and DPPH Assay respectively at 10 µL, 20 µL, 30 µL, 40µL, 50 µL. Conclusion: Within the limits of the study it can be concluded that selenium nanoparticles have exceptional antimicrobial properties and further can be incorporated in dental materials or can be used to coat suture materials to improve their properties.
