Silver (Ag) complexes of drugs and their nanosystems have great potential as antibacterials. Recently, an Ag complex of furosemide (Ag–FSE) has shown to be a promising antimicrobial. However, poor solubility of Ag–FSE could hamper its introduction into clinics. Therefore, the authors developed a nanosuspension of Ag–FSE (Ag–FSE_NS) for its solubility and antibacterial activity enhancement. The aim of this study was to introduce a novel nanoantibiotic with enhanced antibacterial efficacy. Ag–FSE_NS was prepared by precipitation–ultrasonication technique. Size, polydispersity index (PI) an...

Here, extracellular synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) was carried out by Planococcus plakortidis strain BGCC-51 isolated from dye industry effluent soil. The microbes were isolated, screened, and characterised by molecular analysis (accession number KX776160). The optimisation of synthesis of AgNPs to determine the optimum substrate level (1-5 mM), pH (5-9), and temperature (25-55°C) were further carried out. P. plakortidis strain BGCC-51 gave best yield of AgNPs at substrate concentration 5 mM, pH 8, and at 35°C. Synthesised AgNPs were characterised by scanning electron microscope and high-resolution trans...
