Fahad OA, Ali Al-Graibawi MA., Synthesis of silver nanoparticles with curcumin powder, Onl J Vet Res., 26 (2):130-136, 2022. Authors describe manufacture, identification and characterization of silver nanoparticles with aqueous extracts of tubers of Curcumin longa (C. longa) powder. Nano particles were identified by UV-Visible Spectrophotometer at 433nm, Fourier Transformation Infrared (FT-IR) at 500-4000 cm-1 wherein 3327 cm-1 was associated with vibration of hydroxyl (-OH) and 2922 cm-1 CH aromatics and OCH3 clusters. The band at 1645 cm-1 represented C = O and peak at 1010 cm-1 absorption of COC bonds. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) recorded 35.3 nm average diameter of nanoparticles, with diffraction peaks from lattice 111, 200, 220 and 311 planes at angles of 38.27o, 44.59o, 64.40o, and 77.75o. Our results simulate the majority of previous studies. Briefly, we describe a simple method to produce silver nanoparticles loaded with C. longa powder obtained by aqueous extract.
