Antiviral activity of silver nanoparticles synthesized by fungal strain Aspergillus nigerAuthor(s): G.Narasimha
The antiviral property of silver nanoparticles synthesized fromfungal strain Aspergillus niger was tested in this study. The characterized silver nanoparticles with small size (3-10nm) showed an excellent antiviral agent. The viral inactivation process was increased with increasing the concentration. The colloidal silver nanoparticle at 8-12ppm totally inhibited the viral growth in host bacterial strain, E.coli.
