Synthesis of Ag nanoparticle by Urtica extract and investigation of its effect on electron transfer resistant in conductive systems


In this research, biosynthesis of Ag nanoparticle investigated using Urtica extract. Different parameter such as temperature, pH, time and concentration of Ag salt optimize for this goal.  Synthesized nanoparticle characterized by Uv-vis, XRD and TEM methods. Results show Ag nanoparticle synthesized in the size of 10 nm. In continuous, Ag nanoparticle was used for preparation of modified carbon paste electrode. And its effect investigated on electron exchange system for K4[Fe(CN6)] as a standard system. The obtained result shows that synthesized nanoparticle can be improved electrical conductivity of electron exchange in electrochemical systems.
