Biological synthesis of Nanoparticles .......A mission towards synthesis of Ecofriendly nanoparticles

Currently there are several methods for the production of Nanoparticles like Chemical and pysical methods. But there are evidences for the harmfulness of these nanoparticles to the environment. Now there is a need to grow more and more ecofriendly nanoparticles that are best suited to environment. Recently it has been shown that microbes and plants can synthesize nanoparticles in them. Moreover shape, size and nature can be controlled by these biological approaches through just modifying pH, temperature and nutrient media composition. Here we are utilizing general metabolic properties of cells and used to develop nanoparticles. This is an ecofriendly approach and with lots of benefits to human kind. So if we reinvestigate our manufacturing process and adopt more and more ecofriendly process then we can get more and more benefits of nanotechnology with miracles in daily life.

Nice article, I too have concern over the toxic byproduct and induced side effects from chemical methods, and thats I start to work with fungi as model system for the synthesis of metal nanoparticles.

Hi, i am doing research on natural products chemistry and my work is to isolate new compounds from plant, i m intrested in your work weather u r isolating or syntheising nanoparticles by means of plant. plz give me detail about your work .

as far i have concerned with this area ......Ag, Au are the most common nanoparticles synthesized by the microbes and even by the plants.
but still their are great evidences for CdSe, CdS Quantum dots.
i cannot say that it is possible for all metals ....
also, .....all microbes cannot synthesize nanoparticles.
So its a big area of research and several grps of scientist in whole world is working on its mechanistic aspect.

Actually i am interested in synthesizing metal nanoparticles through chemical methods, But you have mentioned that you are synthesizing nanoparticles through biological means how far it is possible, Is it applicable for all metals or for a specific group.

we are doing work on this

Latest Activity

Welcome - about us

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
