I am happy to know about this group. Phytosynthesis of nanoparticles is one of the emerging areas, wherein plant extracts are used to synthesize nanoparticles. Polysacchrides, alkaloids, flavanoids and other such compounds present in the plant extract are speculated to be the possible reducing agents for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles. My query is is there any specific criteria for telling a compound like alkaloids, flavanoids, pigments, sugars etc to be possible reducing agents for nanoparticle synthesis just by looking into the molecular structure of the compound? I will be very glad if any could enlighten about this query.

Welcome to The International NanoScience Community
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
