Abstract

Silver nanoparticles are playing an important role in biomedical and various applications. Bacteriogenic synthesis of nanoparticles emerges as an eco-friendly and exciting approach. In this work, we demonstrate for the first time the extracellular biosynthesis of AgNPs from the Thermophilic Geobacillus thermodenitrificans. The plasmon surface resonance of biosynthesized Ag-NPs showed its characteristic peak at 410 nm. Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) analysis confirmed the nature of the capping agents as protein. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and TEM analysis confirmed the purity, spherical and size (1.44 – 16.3 nm) of Ag-NPs. Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) data validated the biological synthesis of Ag-NPs. The nanoparticles showed highest antimicrobial activity against Candida albicans and to a lesser extent towards Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumonia. The possible use of NPs (0.15 mg/mL) for biofilm eradication was also documented against S.aureus and P.aeruginosa (80–90 % inhibition, respectively). In presence of solar energy, 64% degradation of methyl orange (MO) was achieved upon treatment with G. thermodenitrificans AZ1 AgNPs.
