    Abstract: The widespread use of nano materials leads to more interest in the methods used to obtain these materials. In this study, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized using the extract obtained from the green shells of artemisia absinthium in the case of waste. Reaction solution color change and UV-vis spectra confirmed reduction of silver ions to generate silver atoms. During the synthesis process, functional groups that participated in the reduction and were responsible for the reduction were examined by FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) analysis. SEM-EDX analyzes showed that AgNPs had a global appearance and had a large silver element composition. The XRD results showed a 14.58 nm Crystalline size and the TGA-DTA analysis showed the degradation temperatures of AgNPs. These nanoparticles have been shown to show effective anti-microbial activity of the AgNPs on the gram positive Staphylococcus aureus, gram negative Escherichia coli and Candida albicans yeast. As a resultThe silver nanoparticles (AgNP) showed relatively higher antibacterial activity.
