    Green Synthesis of Selenium Nanoparticles from Banana Stem Extracts and their Cytotoxic Effect
    Author(s): Divij Khullar* and Rajeshkumar S

    Background: Nanoparticles are made using a variety of traditional processes. To maintain stability, hazardous compounds are required as capping agents, resulting in environmental toxicity. As a result, we must switch to "green synthesis." As a result, the purpose of this research was to determine the cytotoxicity of selenium nanoparticles supplemented with banana stem cell extract. The banana was chosen for this investigation because of its inherent anticytotoxic characteristics. Aim: Aim of the study was green preparation of selenium nanoparticles from banana stem and to check its cytotoxicity evaluation. Material and methods: Cytotoxic effect of prepared selenium nanoparticles from banana stem was assessed using Brine Shrimp Assay respectively at 5 µL, 10 µL, 20 µL, 40 µL, 80 µL. Results: The selenium nanoparticle is safe to be used in the den.. Read More»
