A Novel Method for Producing Silver Nanoparticles

Abstract: We created silver nanoparticles using silver nitrate and sodium alginate through a method of mixing and heating the two solutions. The nanoparticles were confirmed by spectrographs and electron micrograph investigations. They proved to be very effective inhibiting the growth of E.Coli when embedded in agar.
