ABSTRACT:
Chicken feathers consists of more amount of proteins in it. Each year in poultry farms the chicken feathers are wasted and dumped into the environment, because degradation of chicken feathers is more complicated to do, even though some ways like burying and burning are available to degrade the chicken feather it is not environmental friendly and because of this the environment gets polluted. Keratin is a group of fibrous protein and has many useful applications. Considering this advantage, the wasted chicken feathers are collected and the keratin is extracted using sodium sulfite as the solvent. The keratin extraction is confirmed by biuret test. The characterization studies are done using FTIR analysis. Further the keratin nanoparticles are synthesized using Silver Nitrate.
