I am student of biotechnology and very much interested in nanotechnology. I am doing my final year project on"synthesis of silver nanoparticles from lactobacillus " .. i referred many papers for protocol(i took silver nitrate as source of silver ions ).. i started with them but i couldn't succeed, tried more than 10 times at different concentrations.. please help me in maintaining the physical conditions(like centrifugation ) and the procedure... plzzzzzzzzz
silver ions are detrimental for any bacterial growth, only those strains of bacteria which have been isolated from silver mines have been found in synthesizing SNP. I'll suggest you to look for other alternative like using fungi for synthesizing silver nanoparticles.
Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
