Silver nanoparticles, or AgNPs, have attracted a lot of interest because of their special qualities and wide range of uses. In this work, Artemisia pallens plant leaf extract was used as a stabilizing and reducing agent during the synthesis of AgNPs. Because of its many therapeutic uses, Artemisia pallens a medicinal plant rich in bioactive chemicals, has been the focus of much phytochemical research. To clarify the chemical makeup and possible bioactive components of the leaf extract, we carried out a thorough phytochemical investigation of the extract in this study. The green synthesis methodology provides economical and environmentally beneficial substitutes for traditional chemical procedures. UV-Vis spectroscopy, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR),were used to characterize the produced nanoparticles. AgNP production was verified by UV-Vis spectroscopy, which showed a distinctive surface plasmon resonance peak at 400–450 nm. Functional groups that are in charge of stabilizing and reducing nanoparticles were found using FTIR analysis. Promising biological uses such as antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-oxidant activities are demonstrated by the produced AgNPs. They are also useful tools in biomedicine because of their potential for use in drug delivery systems and as contrast agents in bioimaging. This work highlights the potential of AgNPs mediated by Artemisia pallens for a variety of biological uses, opening new avenues for investigation in the fields of biomedical research and medical technology.
