Antibacterial activity of biogenic silver nanoparticles was evaluated by zone of inhibition using standard agar disc diffusion method. Among three different concentrations (25, 50 and 100 µl) 100 µl concentration showed maximum activity against Klebsiella pneumonia (2.7 cm), Shigella someneii (2.4 cm), S. flexaneri (2.4 cm), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (2.2 cm), P. mirabilis (2.1 cm) and E. coli (2.0 cm) when compared to the other two concentrations. It was also observed that it showed no activity against geranium plant extract that served as control.
