Abstract. The biosynthesis of silver chloride nanoparticles (AgCl NPs) is presented in this paper. Silver chloride nanoparticles were synthesized using fungi culture from Rhodotorula Mucilaginosa and aqueous AgNO3 solution, as precursor. The plasmon resonance of the nanoparticles containing solution has shown through UV-visible spectrophotometry an absorbance peak at about 437 nm. Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy, and X-ray Diffraction analyses confirmed the presence of spherical silver chloride nanoparticles with a face centered cubic crystal structure and an average particle size of 25 nm. Silver chloride nanoparticles have been shown to be able to inhibit the growth of different microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi, which would make them suitable for antimicrobial applications.
