AbstractSilver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized using Aloe vera leaf extract as both reducing and stabilizing agents via microwave irradiation method. The effects of the microwave exposure time and the amount of AgNO3 solution on the mean particle size and concentration of the synthesized AgNPs solution were investigated using response surface methodology. The synthesized AgNPs were characterized by transmission electron microscopy, UV-Vis spectroscopy, and dynamic light scattering. Well-dispersed and spherically fabricated AgNPs with mean particle size (46 nm) and maximum concentration (64 ppm) and zeta potential (+15.5 mV), were obtained at optimal synthesis conditions, using 9 ml of AgNO3 (1 mm) and 0.1 ml of Aloe vera extract during microwave exposure time of 360 s. The antibacterial activity of the synthesized AgNPs was tested using Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and the obtained results indicated their significant inhibitory effects against these two Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.
