Synthesis of nanoparticles that have environmentally acceptable solvent systems and eco-friendly reducing agents is of great importance. The aim of this work was to synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using Spirulina platensis and Nostoc sp. at room temperature. UV–visible spectrometry study revealed surface plasmon resonance at 402 nm. The transmission electron micrographs of nanoparticles in an aqueous solution showed the production of AgNPs (average size of most particles˜11.5 nm by Spirulina platensis and 20.3 nm by Nostoc sp.). The Fourier Transmittance Infrared spectrum (FT-IR) confirms the presence of biocomponent in the algae which was responsible for the nanoparticles synthesis. The antibacterial activity silver nanoparticles against both gram positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidedymis) and gram negative bacteria (Klebsiella pneumonia, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) by well diffusion method showed excellent antibacterial activity against all tested bacterial. This green process gives the greater potential biomedical applications of silver nanoparticles.
