Silver nanostructures are very important agents in biomedical research, because of its unique activity against unfavorable processes in bioscience. In the current study, reagent-free facile preparation of silver nanoparticles (average diameter: 72 nm) and silver nanoparticles/nanorods hybrid was reported via wet chemical synthesis method. Kappa-carrageenan (kC), a hydrophilic biopolymer with sulphate groups on its backbone, as capping agent was used in the reaction medium. Silver nanoparticles and silver nanoparticles/nanorods formation was confirmed by SEM images. Further investigations were carried out using DLS data and GPC analysis.
