Abstract

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are widely investigated with regard to their physical, chemical, but also biological properties. Antibacterial and antitumor properties of AgNPs have been intensively studied. In addition, the synthesis using a green approach brings further significant biological properties. However, it is also necessary to monitor the potential toxicity of such nanoparticles in different ecosystems. In this study, the effect of AgNO3 and AgNPs on germinated plants of Zea mays was studied. Effects on basic growth and physiological parameters were observed. There was a statistically significant difference between the variants tested.
