bio-chemical methods for the synthesis of advanced silver
nanomaterials by the natural resources especially from the seeds, leaves and
fruits were the eco-friendly alternatives to chemical reduction methods .
A green synthetic route for the production of silver nanoparticles
using aqueous garlic extract is being reported for the first time in presence
of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide . The silver nanoparticles were
synthesized by exposing a mixture containing (2 cm3
