"Spicy world of NanoScience"
biosynthesis of silver nanopartilces by living source is the topical research. it is not the matter of fungi or algae or bacteria, it is all depends on the capping or reducing agent which triggers the reduction of silver precursors to nanosilver. literature says that the unique physio-chemical properties also varies according to the capping or reducing agent.
i m using marine sponges as living source and synthesizing silver nanoparticles for marine biofouling control or antifouling applications.
