In the present study synthesis of Silver nanoparticles (GSSNPs) and Silver nano-coated cotton gauze was carried out by using eco-friendly, cost effective  green synthesis technique from silver nitrate solution  with the flower extract of  Clematis gouriana Roxb as a reducing and capping agent. For their characterisation UV-vis spectrophotometer and SEM was used. Further antimicrobial potential of green synthesised Silver Nano-coated cotton gauze was evaluated by Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method against multi drug resistance clinical isolates S. aureus, E. coli, P. aeruginosa and C.albicans. Significant activity was seen against all the clinical isolates, highest antimicrobial activity was observed against P.aeruginosa with the zone of inhibition of 10.1 ± 0.4b.This study indicated that green synthesised Silver Nano-coated cotton gauze possess significant antimicrobial activity in comparison with standard antimicrobial agents.

Keywords: Nanotechnology, Green synthesis, Silver nanoparticles, Clematis gouriana, UV-vis, SEM Antibacterial activity
