Antiproliferative potential of Sargassum binderi Sonder ex J. Agardh mediated biogenic silver/silver chloride nanoparticles on EAC, MCF-7 and HCT116 cells
Biosynthesis of Ag/AgCl-NPs from Sargassum binderi extract was confirmed by colour changes and a sharp peak at 416 nm detected by UV-visible spectrophotometer. It was characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectrophotometer, X-ray powder Diffraction (XRD) and Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Mild toxicity of the synthesized Ag/AgCl-NPs was determined by the brine shrimp nauplii cytotoxicity assay. IC50 values of 19.73, 25.56, and 14.00
