A REVIEW ON SYNTHESIS AND APPLICATION OF SILVER NANOPARTICLES
Silver is widely known as a noble metal used in the treatment of burn wound diseases, open wounds, and cuts. However, by transforming metallic silver into silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) for better applications, new nanotechnology has had a remarkable impact. Technological developments have increased the synthesis of NPs using biological approaches rather than physical and chemical methods. Nonetheless, it is environmentally safe and cost-efficient to synthesize AgNPs using biological sources. To date, AgNPs are commonly used as antibacterial agents, but the effective use of AgNPs as therapeutic agents for uncertain diseases and infections takes a novel concept. Due to their physical and chemical flexibility, AgNPs have major advantages in biomedicine. The need for non-toxic and eco-friendly approaches to the processing of AgNPs has also been generated by the toxicity issues surrounding AgNPs. Implementations of AgNPs in nanogels, nano-solutions, silver-based dressings, and medical equipment coatings are ongoing. Even, the need for the hour is an improvised version of AgNPs for extended implementations in an eco-friendly way. The present analysis, therefore, stresses in depth the mechanisms of production, mechanisms of activity under dissipative conditions, and the numerous biomedical applications of AgNPs.
