A simple, non-toxic and eco-friendly technique was adopted for synthesizing silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) by using aqueous leaf extracts of Eichhornia crassipes. In the present study, silver nanoparticles were synthesized using silver nitrate. The visual appearance of colour was noted and characterized further by UV, IR, SEM and XRD analysis. By using this green technique, silver nanoparticles can be effectively synthesized in a very short time which can be helpful in controlling its population.
