Green Synthesis of Silver/Polystyrene Nano Composite (Ag/PS NCs) via Plant Extracts Beginning a New Era in Drug Delivery


Objectives: The development of polystyrene silver nanocomposite of multi-drug resistance through several microbial bacteria has been a cause of real auspices to the medical world, shorter option of antibiotics. Contemplating that it may take decades to synthesize new nanocomposite drugs that combat resistant pathogens the search for alternatives to conventional antimicrobial agents has begun. Development of Ag nanoparticles was growing in neoteric years and is for the time being considered for the user and medicalincomes. Methods: We review a novel phenomenon polystyrene silver nanocomposite (PS/AgNCs) for the combination of green leaf being and their physical, chemical, biological, mechanical and electrical attributes. The methods of action and potential use in medicine and research with special allusion to antimicrobial application shall be discussed. Findings: The current review scouts about the huge plant variety to be utilized towards rapid and single step protocol preparatory method with green principles over the conventional ones and describes the germicide motions of the (PS/Ag NCs). Application: Nanoparticles were positively estimated for their antimicrobial performances in the running study. Several properties, including powerful and stable materials, conductive devices, sensors and biomedical (drug delivery) were used as vehicles for drug delivery to enable the effective entry to the body.
