In this research work, silver nanoparticles were synthesized using aqueous leaf extract of A. tortuosum. Biosynthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by using UV-Visible, XRD, TEM and FTIR techniques. Results proved that biosynthesized silver nanoparticles were highly crystalline, having average size less than 10 nm and encircled by bio-functional groups which were responsible for configuration and stability of silver nanoparticles, present in the aqueous leaf extract of A. tortuosum. Potential antibacterial activity shown by silver nanoparticles against pathogenic strains i.e. Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Lactobacillus plantarum.
