Nanotechnology has recently emerged as an elementary discipline of science that explores the interaction of synthetic and biological materials. Nanotechnology is currently employed as a tool to exploit the darkest avenues of medical sciences to combat dreadful diseases caused by drug resistant microbes. Silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) have been well known for its inhibitory and bactericidal effects. Silver Nanoparticles was synthesized by ecofriendly biogenic approach mediated by using the culture supernatant of Bacillus sp. DRI-6. The biogenic silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-visible spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Ag NPs exhibited maximum antibacterial activity against E.coli and Pseudomonas sp.

Keywords: Antibacterial activity, Bactericidal,Bacillus sp. DRI-6, Silver Nanoparticles.
