The green synthesis of nanoparticles is an important branch and a relatively new emerging field in nanotechnology which is easy, environmentally friendly, cost effective, and economically efficient in comparison with the chemical and physical methods. In the present work, for the first time, green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) was carried out by using fructose solution as a reducing agent at room temperature. The silver nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Vis, FTIR, XRD, and TEM analysis. The UV-Vis spectral studies confirmed the surface plasmon resonance of the green synthesized silver nanoparticles. The role of different functional groups in formation of the AgNps was shown by FTIR. X-ray diffraction results confirmed the formation of the the AgNPs and TEM results indicated that the average particle size of the silver nanoparticles was 13.24±8.591 nm.
