Abstract: This study aims to prepare silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and investigate its effects on the growth of some pathogenic bacteria affecting potato crops. The green synthesis of AgNPs, from silver nitrate using marine algae as a novel bioresource of cost-effective nonhazardous reducing and stabilizing compounds. Biosynthesis of AgNPswill be indicated by the change in mixtures color from light yellow to brown. The resulting AgNPswill be characterized by UV-Vis spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The possible functional groups of phytochemicals or proteins in Algae that help in the reduction of Silver nitrate to AgNPs and its stabilizations will be determined using Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The antibacterial activity of synthesized AgNPs against Erwiniacartovorawas investigated.
