Formulation and Evaluation of Silver Nanoparticles of Methanolic extract of Solanum virginianum L. for Antimicrobial and Antioxidant potential
Nanotechnology can be termed as the characterization, Fabrication, exploration and application of nano sized materials where nano denotes extremely minute structures ranging 1-100 nm. Among the new towards for employ nanotechnology success in medicine, various nano particulates offer some special advantages as pharmaceutical delivery systems and image advancement agents Solanum virginianum L, (wild eggplant or nightshade plant), are a prickly herb, belongs to family Solanaceae. It has spines throughout the plant. Various phytoconstituents have been found, the major constituents is alkaloid. It has vital role in various traditional as well as medicinal uses for curing internal and external physiological disorders. This plant has also used for phytoremediation as it possess the ability to degrade carbofuran residues in rice field soil and therefore the plant species may further be investigated for its phytoremidial role. In the present study, AgNPs of plant Solanum virginianum was synthesized and characterized by UV-Vis spectrophotometer, FT-IR and SEM analysis. In-vitro anti-oxidant and anti-microbial investigations showed the impressive results. However the present investigation adverts that the AgNPs can be used to prepare and develop Nano-drug, new generation of antimicrobials, drug delivery systems, biosensors and different other applications such as Ag based dressing, Ag-coated medicinal device
