    Author(s): Shifa Jawahar Ali, Abirami Arthanari* and S Rajeshkumar

    Introduction: Nanotechnology has a wide range of biomedical applications and nanoparticles can be devised to possess unique composition and functionalities, which can provide novel tools and techniques in biomedical research. Nanotechnology is one of the rapidly developing sciences in the past few years. Nanoparticles are materials that have all their dimensions in the Nano scale and measured in nanometres. The size-dependent physicochemical properties of nanoparticles promote their application in many products but the same unique properties also can lead to physiological responses in living systems by interaction with these materials. Aim: The aim of the present study is to synthesize silver nanoparticles from aqueous extract of Vetiveria zizanioides plant and to evaluate its antioxidant potential. Materials and methods: Plant extract of Vetiveria zizanioides was prepared and filtere.. Read More»
