    Objective: The aim of present study was to select suitable growth medium for bacteria capable of silver nanoparticle synthesis. Background: The synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) has received considerable attention with their potential applications in field of life sciences. Silver nanoparticles (SNPs) have extensive applications in civil, therapeutic and industrial areas as catalyst, cryogenic superconductor, biosensor, microelectronic and bacteriostatic materials. Currently, there is a growing need to develop environmentally benevolent nanoparticle synthesis processes that do not use toxic chemicals in the synthesis protocol. Among the various known synthesis methods, biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles is preferred as it is environmentally safe, low cost and less toxic. Methods: In the present study we have screened different culture medium for the growth of bacteria capable of silver nanoparticles synthesis. Different growth medium were screened on the basis of colour and UV-Visible spectrophotometric analysis. Results: Only one culture medium Basal salt medium containing glucose was found to be suitable for synthesis of silver nanoparticles on the basis of colur and UV-Visible spectrophotometric analysis. Conclusion: Basal salt medium containing glucose is suitable for growth of bacteria responsible for ecofriendly synthesis of silver nanoparticles.
