The emerging branch of Bio-Nanotechnology combines biological principles with physical andchemical approaches to produce nano sized particles with specific functions.Silver nanoparticles has been widely studied due to the excellent physicochemical properties,high chemical stability, catalytic activity and antibacterial activity,eco-friendlynature and cost-effectiveness.The main objective of this work is to green synthesis of silver nanoparticles with Cissus quadrangularisand Gymnema sylvestreand to assess theirantibacterial properties. The observed results suggested that using C.quadrangularisandG.sylvestre,synthesisedsilver nanoparticles andexhibited significant antimicrobial properties.Theresults demonstrate that the Ag-NPs reported in this work are capable of eradicating pathogenic resistant bacteria in an infection in vivo.Obtained results suggest the potential use of Ag-NPs, synthesized by green chemistry methods, as therapeuticagentsagainst infections caused by resistant and non-resistantstrains.
