Abstract: Biogenic synthesis of gold (Au), silver (Ag) and bimetallic alloy Au-Ag nanoparticles (NPs) from aqueous solutions using Cannabis sativa as reducing and stabilising agent has been presented in this report. Formation of NPs was monitored using UV-visible spectroscopy. Morphology of the synthesised metallic and bimetallic NPs was investigated using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. Elemental composition and the surface chemical state of NPs were confirmed by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy…
