Silve spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), photoluminescence, Raman spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM–TEM), zeta potential and dynamic light scattering (DLS). The presence of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) band (416 nm) confirmed fabrication of AgNPs. The effect of microwave irradiation time showed that the size, shape and stability of AgNPs depend on increasing of peak intensity with increasing reaction time. FTIR spectrum confirmed the possible functional group in the product indicating presence of PVP. The enlargement in the size and agglomeration of nanoparticles were prevented by r nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been formulated using microwave irradiation from non-aqueous solution of silver nitrate (AgNO3) and poly (N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP) as a stabilizer. Ethanol has also been reacted like a reducer for microwave irradiation process which is quite rapid, homogeneous and efficient. The as synthesized AgNPs was further characterized by ultraviolet–Visible (UV–Vis)encapsulation of PVP during the reaction. XRD spectra illustrated that AgNPs are higher crystalline having face-centered cubic surface. The morphological analysis found that the AgNPs are homogeneous and spherical with the size of 18 ± 5 nm. The zeta potential measurement affirms the higher stability of AgNPs due to its negatively charged surface. The prepared AgNPs also exhibited electrical properties obeying the ohm’s law and significantly antimicrobial activities against Escherichia coli due to the small size.
