The morphology and anti bacterial activity of capped Silver Nanoparticles of 5-Methyl 2-mercapto benzimidazole prepared via chemical reduction is studied. Spherical shaped capped Ag-NPs with size of 40nm are obtained by treatment of aqueous silver ions with ethanolic solution of 5-Methyl 2-mercapto benzimidazole as capping agent .The synthesized nanoparticles are characterized by SEM, TEM, XRD, FTIR studies and were tested for antibacterial activity. It is observed that the obtained silver  nanoparticles are uniform in their shape and sizes and also shown good antibacterial properties.
