To synthesize, characterize, and to assess the anti-microbial activity of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) induced by goat fecal matter. The AgNPs were processed by the microwave heating method and the characterization was accomplished by employing various spectroscopic approaches such as UV-Visible, FTIR spectroscopy, XRD, Particle size, and Zeta potential analysis. The lmax for both extracts were found at 426& 438nm. The wideband corresponded to O-H stretching vibrations at 3384.0 cm-1, 3273.9 cm-1 and 3366.2 cm-1, bands at 2918.5 cm-1, 2922.5 cm-1, 2853.2 cm-1, and 2850.2 cm-1 corresponded to the N–H and C–H stretching. The bands at 1638.1 cm-1, 1651.9, and 1686.5 cm-1 corresponded to the C=C stretch. Bands of 1460.3 cm-1, 1450.4 cm-1, 1409.2 cm-1 and 1376.3 cm-1 corresponded to C-N, C-C bond stretching vibrations. The stretch of C-O indicates bands at 1159.7 cm-1, 1033.2 cm-1, and 1032.8 cm-1. The synthesized AgNPsdemonstrated good anti-microbial activity on gram +Ve (S.aureus) and gram -Ve (E.coli) bacteria. Bio/Green synthesized AgNPs have shown improved biological performance, this tends to minimize production cost, pollution-free, less chemical usage, and stable generation of nanoparticles.
