Abstract In the present Communication, a completely "green" synthetic method for producing silver nanoparticles is introduced. The process is simple, environmentally benign, and quite efficient. By gentle heating of an aqueous starch solution containing silver nitrate and glucose, we produce relatively monodisperse, starched silver nanoparticles. beta-d-Glucose serves as the green reducing agent, while starch serves as the stabilization agent.
