Abstract

Biosynthesis of metal nanoparticles is expected as a cost efficient and ecofriendly option in the research study. Therefore, the aqueous extracts made from leaf of Aesculus hippocastanum (horse chestnut) were used as the reducing factors to synthesize silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and their antioxidant, antibacterial and the application of resveratrol combined AgNPs as efficient delivery vehicles have also been evaluated. The biosynthesized AgNPs were characterized by UV-Visible Spectroscopy, Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), X Ray Diffraction (XRD), Zeta potential, and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM).
