Abstract

In the present study, the green synthesis of potassium nanoparticles (K-NPs) was assessed using aqueous extract of Sideroxylon capiri. The potassium nanoparticles were analyzed by UV-visible spectroscopic techniques, X-ray spectrometers of energy dispersive (SEM-EDS) and dynamic light scattering. The results showed high values at 3.5 keV confirming the formation of potassium nanoparticles and the SEM analysis showed an agglomerated particles size between 360 to 200 nm with a spherical morphology. The K-NPs showed an effective antibacterial activity against the test organisms mainly with Bacillus cereus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Fusarium solani and Botrytis cinerea. However further studies about nanotoxicity of K-NPs are needed to confirm their potential in the control of the pathogen microorganisms under field conditions.
