Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) synthesized through eco-friendly methods have garnered considerable attention for their sustainable production, spectroscopic characterization, and potent antibacterial properties. This abstract provides an overview of the eco-friendly synthesis of AgNPs, their spectroscopic analysis, and their promising role as antibacterial agents. Eco-friendly synthesis routes harness sustainable sources such as plant extracts, microorganisms, and biocompatible materials to reduce silver ions into AgNPs. These green methods have gained prominence due to their low environmental impact. In this review, we explore various eco-friendly synthesis approaches and the critical factors influencing the synthesis process, including reaction parameters and the choice of natural agents. Spectroscopic analysis, encompassing techniques such as UV-Vis spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), is pivotal for characterizing AgNPs. These methods provide essential insights into the size, shape, crystal structure, and stability of the nanoparticles. Additionally, Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy aids in identifying biomolecules from eco-friendly sources that may influence the characteristics of the AgNPs.
