Abstract

AgNPs, over the past decades have attractive considerable interest because of their exclusive optical, electromagnetic, catalytic properties, and antifungal potency compared with other metal nanoparticles. This study was conducted to evaluate the antifungal effect of colloidal AgNPs gainst pathogenic Candida species such as Candida albicans, Candida glabrata and Candida tropicalis using disc diffusion method. Biosynthesis of AgNPs was confirmed by appearance of greyish black color of the fungal filtrate and UV visible spectrometry analysis reveals maximum absorption at 430 nm. The obtained resulted suggested that AgNPs was found to be effective against Candida species based on the diameter of the inhibition zone thus have potential implications to be used as antifungal agent.
