There has been an expanding interest for eco friendly synthesis of silver nanoparticles that don't have so much toxic impacts on crops. Silver nanoparticles have a wide scope of utilizations, for example, catalysis, hardware, photonics, optoelectronics, detecting, agriculture and drugs. In this study, the biologically synthesized and characterization of silver nanoparticles have become the prime areas. Green synthesis of nanoparticles using plant extracts is being explored globally owing to the absence of disadvantages associated with conventional methods. This study reports the synthesis of silver nanoparticles using the extract of Bambusa vulgaris (Bamboo), Azadirachta indica (Neem) leaves, characterization of the synthesized by using techniques such as Ultraviolet-Visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy confirmed the synthesis of nanoparticles, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and EDX studies revealed  the characteristics of the nanoparticles synthesized. Also under this, we examined the effects of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on pea plants in the terms of silver accumulation, production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), Quantification of Cell Death under ex situ conditions.

Key words:    silver nanoparticles, reactive oxygen species, Bambusa vulgaris, accumulation
