Now a days synthesis of nanoparticles using plants and herbal products is significant by the many researchers. In this study, we report the synthesis of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) using aqueous extract of Biebersteinia multifida at room temperature and its photocatalytic activity for degradation of methyl blue (MB) dye under visible light. The synthesized nanoparticles were characterized by using UV-Vis spectroscopy, powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Synthesized nanoparticles are spherical with 57 nm of particle size. Results photocatalytic activity of synthesized Ag NPs showed that degradation efficiency arrived to 92% in first 30 minutes.
