Abstract

In the present study, an attempt was made to analyze the growth of Zea mays L. supplemented with Silver nanoparticles in different concentration (20ppm, 40ppm and 60ppm). Silver nanoparticles was synthesized from leaf extract of Zea mays L. The synthesized nanoparticle was characterized and confirmed using UV-Vis spectrometric analysis, SEM, and FTIR analysis. Synthesis of Silver nanoparticle was confirmed by colour change and the peak at 500 nm using UV Visible spectrophotometer. Seed germination and In vivo growth analysis of Zea mays L. supplemented with silver nanoparticles exhibited maximum growth at 60 ppm concentration. Accumulation of silver nanoparticle in the plant was measured using atomic absorption spectroscopy.
