Rapid Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles from Fusarium oxysporum by Optimizing Physicocultural Conditions

Effect of light intensity on SNPs synthesis. A:  lux (sunlight), B: 141.3 lux (40 Watt yellow light), C: 190.7 lux (40 Watt fluorescence light), D: in dark, E: 93.1 lux (UV light), and F: 15.5 lux (15 Watt light). (a) Sunlight (spectrum A) shows maximum surface plasmon absorbance which indicates the maximum synthesis (within 10 min) and monodispersity of SNPs followed by 141.3 lux light intensity (spectrum B). In dark, more than 48 hrs were required for complete reduction of silver ions. Particle size distribution by NTA of sample prepared in sunlight ((b) inset).
