New Approaches for Preparation of Silver nanoparticles using Quince Plant Extract as Antibacterial Agents

Rana A. K. Al-Refaia


Nanoparticles have been considered as one of the emerging and promising platforms to solve the problem of antibacterial resistance. The uses of plants in synthesis of nanoparticles are new method as its cheap, environmental friendly and easily synthesis. In this paper silver nanoparticles were prepared using the Quince extract to inhibit the viability of some species of bacteria, because of their unique properties and conspicuous therapeutic potential in treating a variety of diseases. UV/visible, SEM and IR spectroscopy have been used to identify the presence of AgNPs. The in vitro test which was used to evaluate the potency of nanoparticles as antibacterial agents, two different types of bacteria (E coli and Staphylococcus) has been tested against the Quince extract and AgNPs produced from the extract. The overall results shown that the more than 80-90% of both types of bacteria are non-resistant and eliminated compared with untreated bacteria. Thus quince extract is a good biomaterial for the synthesis of AgNPs as antibacterial agents.
