The development of science and technology has nurtured the merging of green chemistry with green engineering and nanotechnology. Green nanotechnology has provided many breakthroughs in creating quality health and environment. In this study we report the synthesis of soap impregnated with silver nanoparticles using green principles. Green methodology was adopted to synthesize AgNPs to minimize the negative impacts of synthetic procedures and to develop environmentally benign procedures for the synthesis of metallic nanoparticles. We herein report Coleus Vettiveroids aqueous leaf extract mediated green synthesis of silver nanoparticles. The synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Vis Spectroscopy, Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). As a part of our continuous study, the synthesized silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were impregnated in soap prepared by the saponification of coconut oil. It was further characterised by UV-Vis Spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The soap impregnated with silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) showed antibacterial activities against both gram positive and gram-negative bacteria. The study revealed the efficacy of synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using green principles and its potential application in health and environment
