In this study, the biogenic synthesis of economically viable Ti0 2 nanoparticles using stevia leaf broth was assessed for its in vitro antioxidant, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. In this study, we have created a simple and environmentally safe process that uses stevia leaf extract to create titanium dioxide nanoparticles from titanium dioxide solution. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), UV absorption spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and x-ray diffraction (XRD) were used to analyze the produced nanoparticles. The XRD pattern's strong peaks demonstrate the titanium dioxide nanoparticles' purity and crystallinity. The nanoparticles, which range in size from 48 to 94 nm, are spherical, according to scanning electron microscopy.
