Abstract: The synthesis of metal nanoparticles is in vogue due to their applications in various fields. We synthesized nanoparticles by chemical reduction method. In this study, first we prepared reducing agent (3-methyl pyrazol-5-one) by chemical method and that reducing agent is then used for the preparation of silver nano particles. The characterization of silver nanoparticles was done by using UV-Visible spectrophotometer, FTIR, SEM and XRD. It was found that the growth of Escherchia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae was inhibited by this synthesized silver nanoparticles. The average particle size of the silver nano particles calculated from XRD spectra is about 17.68 nm.
