Background/Objective: synthesis of silver nanoparticles by the extract of Calophyllum apetalum and their characterization to find out size and morphology of the particles.

Methodology: The characterization was done by X-Ray diffractive (XRD), UV- Visible spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). X-Ray diffraction (XRD) was used to find out the particle size and SEM image was used to determine its morphology.

Findings: 94nm silver nanoparticles were synthesized.

Improvements/Application: As antibacterial agents.
