The present study was aimed to synthesize silver nanoparticles from stem extracts of Caralluma fimbriyata and analyse its antibacterial activity. Generally, nanoparticles have had plenty of commercial usages. Normally, plants’ stem extracts can reduce aqueous silver ions so as generating water soluble remarkably stable nanoparticles. The FT-IR analysis was used to study the product chemically. The zone of inhibition was also observed by the silver nanoparticles that have been synthesized in a green method against isolated gram negative and gram-positive bacteria.
