    Abstract: Synthesis of nanoparticles was done by green method. Silver nitrate was used as the silver precursor, while the fruit juices of the citrus fruits (Citrus sinensis, Citrus limetta, Citrus aurantifolia, Citrus paradisi) were used as reducing and stabilizing agents. The nanoparticle formation was confirmed with the visible colour change from colourles... Show More
