Abstract: The water soluble fraction (WSF) of diesel particulate matter (DPM), an environmental pollutant was used to synthesize silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). FTIR, fluorescence and UV-Vis data suggest that water soluble oxygenated PAHs in the WSF of DPM are capped to the surface of AgNPs providing the stability. The particle size, the size distribution, and the crystalline nature were confirmed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis.
