Abstract

In the present study, phytochemicals-mediated rapid, stable and eco-friendly synthesis of gold nanoparticles (GNPs) using Pterocarpus santalinus L. (Red Sanders) bark extract is reported. The powerful characteristics of different phytochemicals present in P. santalinus L. bark prompted us to determine their efficacy in the bio-reduction of gold chloride trihydrate to the corresponding GNPs. The biosynthesis of GNPs was investigated at the physiological condition (pH = 7.4). The synthesized GNPs were characterized by UV–visible spectroscopy by measuring the peak in the range of 400–700 nm. The GNPs synthesized at physiological conditions revealed surface plasmon resonance (SPR) at 545 nm. The crystalline nature of GNPs was confirmed by using x-ray diffraction (XRD), and the functional groups adhered on the surface of the GNPs were analyzed by Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) analysis showed spherical GNPs in the size range of 13–26 nm. The synthesized GNPs exhibited antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains.
