Abstract

Skin infections are caused by variety of germs, and symptoms vary from mild to serious. Bacterial and Fungal infections require the special attention as they affect 80% of serious skin infections. Development of specific consortium between antibiotic and microorganism during repeated treatment develops antibiotic resistance. Treatment of skin infections are considered to be as a major research area in personal cosmetic care industries and pharmaceutical. Nanotechnology has played vital role in the search for new ways to prevent and treat infections, including metallic nanoparticles with antimicrobial properties. Green synthesis of silver nanoparticles(AgNPs) has gained a vital role in society. In this concern, Indian flora has yet to reveal innumerable roots of cost effective non-hazardous reducing and stabilizing compound utilized in preparing AgNPs. This study investigates an efficient and sustainable route of AgNPs preparation using leaf extracts of Cymbopogon citratus well adorned for their wide availability and medicinal property . The AgNPs were duly synthesized and characterized. The biosynthesized AgNPs exhibited antibacterial activity against gram negative and gram positive bacteria. This study also aims at evaluating the antifungal properties of AgNPs.

Key Words
