Abstract :

In the present investigation iron and silver nanoparticles were synthesized by green synthesis method and were characterized with the help of UV vis spectrometer. Also various phytochemical test were performed. This research starts with the brief introduction of nanoparticles which elaborates it’s chemistry as well as its importance. Further green synthesis method was explained which involves the two main methods which were top-down approach and bottom up approach. Literature of nanotechnology was discussed which shows its importance and beneficial points .Motivation point was covered which indicates how nanoparticles can be formed through various substance such as DNA, RNA etc. A brief description was given on the extract of Vanda rox burghii which illustrates it’s family, botanical discription etc. Further various chemicals and equipments used in the research were explained. Green synthesis process of silver and iron nanoparticles was explained. Here the characterization was done with the help of UV vis spectroscopy where the samples were scanned at the speed of 480 nm. After this the phytochemicals test were discussed which involved various test they are glycosides test , test for steroids which was carried through salkowski’s test , test for phenol and tannins, test for alkaloids which was performed through dragendroffs test , test for saponins and glycosides which was carried through foam test and solubility test all the test showed a positive results.
Keywords: – Silver nanoparticles, iron nanoparticles, green synthesis, nanotechnology, UV- Vis spectroscopy
