Original Paper


Resonance light-scattering (RLS) technique was developed for studying the interaction of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) with bisphenol A. A simple and environmentally friendly method was developed to synthesize Ag NPs using cinnamon extract. Synthesized nanoparticles were characterized using various measurement techniques. The synthesized Ag NPs were nearly spherical, with the sizes ranging from 30 to 60 nm. Spectral analysis indicated that the cinnamon extract acted as the reducing and capping agents on the surface of Ag NPs. RLS technique was used as the detection method. Light-scattering properties of the synthesized nanoparticles in the presence or absence of bisphenol A was selected as the detection signal. Under the optimal conditions, the linear dynamic range and RSD were found to be 0.01–10.0 mg L−1 and 2.78% (n = 3), respectively. A limit of detection of 0.005 mg L−1 was obtained for the determination of bisphenol A. The obtained results showed successful application of the method for the analysis of bisphenol A in real samples.
