The medicinal plant residue obtained to synthesis AgNPs is the thrust area of research today. The present research work emphasis on the AgNPs synthesized from a medicinal plant residue Artocarpus altilis whose secondary metabolites bear responsible for the confined size of the AgNPs. Further, the AgNPs were analyzed for Physico-chemical analysis, where FT-IR Peak value gives the functional groups of A. altilis. FESEM analyses show surface morphology with 44 nm. EDAX analyses of show metal precursor involved in the process. XRD patterns show the crystalline structure. The AgNPs was analysised for the antibacterial assay against five human pathogens. Finally, cyto-toxic activity of AgNPs was analyzed with two human cancer cell lines namely MCF 7 lung cancer cell line and A549 breast cancer cell line. Hence, the novel and eco-friendly AgNPs are safe with its biocompatibility which becomes a promising agent in the biomedical precisely.
