In the present study, we report an eco-friendly and economical way for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles using the weed Allmania nadiflora. The plant popularly known as “Erra baddiaaku” belongs to the family Amaranthaceae. Characterization of the silver nanoparticles was done using UV Visible Spectroscopy (Uv-Vis), Fourier Transform Infra Red Spectroscopy (FTIR), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Transmission electron Microscopy (TEM). All the synthesized nanoparticles exhibited significant antimicrobial activity. Significance of the above in the light of existing literature is discussed in the present communication.
