Abstract: Abstract: In this research work, we report the synthesis of silver nanoparticles by using a green synthesis method. The 40 nm sized AgNPs synthesized via this one-pot greener approach, can be used as a capable material in different fields such as cosmetics, foods, medicine as well as pollutant degradation, etc. This environment benign process did not use of any extra capping or reducing agent or template. As synthesized silver nanoparticles were evidenced by some advance analysis techniques like as: fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) etc. X-ray analysis exhibits that the pure silver nanoparticles were grown in a single phase. Particle size was confirmed by the XRD and TEM images of the well dispersed sample. This method can also be facilitated for other metals such as copper (Cu), palladium (Pd), gold (Au) and platinum (Pt).
