Table 1 Yield, size, and zeta potential of SS-capped AgNPs synthesized from SS and AgNO 3 at pH 11

From: Green synthesis of silk sericin-capped silver nanoparticles and their potent anti-bacterial activity

Sample Yield of AgNPs (mM) Size (nm) Zeta potential (mV)
5 mg/mL SS + 1 mM AgNO3 0.06 95.8 ± 0.9 −23.7 ± 0.6
5 mg/mL SS + 5 mM AgNO3 0.75 48.8 ± 0.1* −25.2 ± 0.2
5 mg/mL SS + 10 mM AgNO3 0.88 55.2 ± 0.6* −17.1 ± 0.6
10 mg/mL SS + 1 mM AgNO3 0.04 117.0 ± 6.8 −22.0 ± 0.1
10 mg/mL SS + 5 mM AgNO3 0.66 48.1 ± 0.2* −25.5 ± 0.9
10 mg/mL SS + 10 mM AgNO3 0.93 63.6 ± 1.6* −18.8 ± 2.3
  1. *p < 0.05, significant against the values of SS-capped AgNPs synthesized from 1 mM AgNO3 at the corresponding SS concentration.
