In this study, simple approach was attempted to obtain a green eco-friendly way for the bio-synthesis of metal nanoparticles (AgNPs) from bioreduction of AgNO3 solutions using Azadirachta indica leaf extracts. The formation of nanoparticle and its stability were examined through UV-Visible spectra, FTIR spectra, and Zeta potential measurements. The exposure of metal ions to these plant extract by UV-Vis confirmed the presence of silver nanoparticles. FTIR revealed the reduction of silver ions, the functional groups present in the plant extract. The stability of the AgNPs was confirmed with the zeta potential measurement.
