Curcuma longa is a medicinal plant commonly known as turmeric and well known for its medicinal properties. Curcumin, the main constituent of turmeric,. Curcumin is responsible for the biological activities of turmeric. Curcumin has potent anti-inflammatory activity.
In the present study, antiinflammatory activity of turmeric oil mediated silver nanoparticle was Carried out.
Materials and Methods
Turmeric oil was obtained from Synthite Industries Limited, Kerala as a gift sample and silver nanoparticle was prepared using Turmeric oil. The synthesized nanoparticles solution was preliminarily characterized by using UV-visible spectroscopy. The color change in reaction mixture (Silver nitrate solution + turmeric oil) was recorded by visual observation. The results were recorded for the graphical analysis.
The greatest effect of AgNPs (150 μg/mL) was found to be more than standard diclofenac sodium.
It may be concluded from this study that turmeric oil mediated silver nanoparticles can be used as potential source of anti inflammatory agent.
