Antioxidant Activity of Green Synthesized Platinum Nanoparticles by Using Tornabea scutellifera Extract
Keywords:Green synthesis, Platinum nanoparticles, antioxidant activity, nanotechnology, Tornabea scutellifera
First time in this study Tornabea scutellifera extract were used for synthesis of Platinium nanoparticles (Pt NPs). The DPPH scavenging activity of T. scutellifera-based Pt NPs was determined and its usability as antioxidant activity was evaluated. With characterization tests, it was observed that Pt NPs were in spherical structure and had an average diameter of 88.7 nm. Functional groups that play a role in the synthesis were determined by FT-IR analysis with the peaks determined at 1623 cm-1, 1146 cm-1, 1042 cm-1, 987 cm-1, 625 cm-1 ve 558 cm-1. Elemental structure (presence of Pt) was revealed by EDX analysis. It was determined that T. scutellifera-based Pt NPs exhibited anti-oxidant activity against DPPH (184.06 µg/ml, R2=0.8727). It is thought that the study can be used in nanotechnology-related multidisciplinary studies.
