  • Abstract

    An attempt has been made for eco-friendly synthesis of silver nanoparticles by water extract of Piper nigrum seed. Formation of AgNPs and their morphology was confirmed by using different advanced characterization techniques such as UV-Visible spectroscopy, XRD and FE-SEM images of AgNPs. Further we wish to report for the first time reduction of various nitro compounds to corresponding amines by NaBH4 in the presence of AgNPs as a catalyst. After reaction course, AgNPs can be recycled and reused without any apparent loss of activity which makes this process cost effective and hence eco-friendly. The structures of all the corresponding reduced products were confirmed by comparing their IR, 1H NMR, spectra with the authentic samples.
