Nanotechnology is emerging as a rapidly growing field with its application in Science and Technology to produce new materials. In this study, silver nanoparticles were synthesized using an aqueous extract of Tagetes erecta L. flowers. The development of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) was identified by spectral (UV-Vis absorption, FTIR, EDX, and XRD), and microscopic (SEM) analyses. The formation of AgNPs was confirmed by the appearance of the absorption peak at 422 nm. In addition, SEM analysis displayed the spherical-shaped nanoparticles. The crystalline nature of AgNPs was revealed by XRD analysis with an average size of 80.10 nm..
