Abstract

Objective: The present study focused on synthesizing silver nanoparticles (AgNO3) using Moringa Oleifera seeds and Glycyrrhiza glabra stems.


Methods: The synthesized AgNO3 were used to evaluate the antibacterial efficacy of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by agar well diffusion method. AgNO3 were produced from silver nitrate using M. oleifera seeds and G. glabra stems.


Results: AgNO3 were characterized using UV-visible spectroscopy at a wavelength of 400–460 nm. AgNO3 from G. glabra stems showed high anti- MRSA activity with 32 mm zone of inhibition, and M. oleifera seed extract showed 30 mm inhibition zone of inhibition against MRSA.


Conclusion: The biologically synthesized AgNO3 can be used against MRSA.

Keywords: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Silver nanoparticles, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Moringa oleifera.
