Nanoparticles of noble metals belong to the most extensively studied colloidal systems in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Silver nanoparticles of different sizes have been prepared with the chemical reduction method using sodium borohydride and characterized using optical absorption technique. Using optical absorption and fluorescence emission studies, the photo physical properties of 2-amino-3-bromo1, 4-naphthoquinone (ABNQ) on silver nanoparticle have been studied. Concentration of the silver nanoparticle has been evaluated and the particle size dependent interaction between silver nanoparticles and ABNQ has been studied. The fluorescence quantum yield of ABNQ with and without silver nanoparticles has been calculated. The Stern-Volmer quenching constants and the molar absorptivity have been evaluated.
