Plant materials are emerging as an exciting resource for the development of non-toxic noble nanoparticles. In this study, we demonstrated a single step method for synthesis of silver chloride nanoparticles (AgCl-NPs) using leaf extract of Cissus quadrangularis under ambient condition. It was found that aqueous AgNO3 when treated with leaf extract of C. quadrangularis was reduced leading to the formation of AgCl-NPs which was continuously monitored by measuring the change in absorbance at different time intervals using UV?visible spectral studies. The synthesized particles were characterized by FTIR, XRD and FESEM to understand the nature, size and shape. The average size of the AgCl-NPs was found to be 13 nm. The antibacterial activity of AgCl-NPs was evaluated against Gram positive and Gram negative bacterial pathogens by minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) test. Results showed that AgCl-NPs could inhibit the growth of tested bacteria and their MIC values were less than 7 μg/ mL. Thus, the leaf extract of C. quadrangularis could be used as a bio-reactant for the biogenic synthesis of AgCl-NPs and it can be used as potent antibacterial agent.
