Synthesis of nanoparticles by green methods with antibacterial properties is of great researchers’ concern in the explored of new pharmaceutical and biomedical products. In this study, we synthesized a new product of nanosized particles of silver, non-toxic economy, clean, and conservator for energy. An environmentally friendly route is used for synthesizing silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using an orange peel extract as both reducing and stabilizing agent at room temperature. The synthesized NPs were characterized using ultraviolet (UV)-Vis spectrophotometer, Zitasizer which measures the average size of the particles at about 91 nm, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) equipped with the energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and characterization using Transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results confirmed that the orange peel extract is a very good bioreductant for the synthesis of Ag NPs and we investigated the synthesized nanoparticles as an antibacterial which showed that the biogenic synthesized AgNPs exhibit inhibition, and had significant antibacterial against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial strains.

Key words: Silver nanoparticles, biogenic synthesis, orange peel, anti bacterial, gram-positive, gram-negative bacteria streamers.
