About the book


Biological synthesis employing microorganisms, fungi or plants is an alternative method to produce nanoparticles in a low-cost, simple and eco-friendly way. This route provides a nontoxic and reliable way for nanomaterials synthesis with diversity in size, shape, composition, and physicochemical properties. The biocomponents are capable of serving as the templates for the synthesis and organising the nanorange particles into well-defined structures. These biomediated nanomaterials have significantly contributed towards a variety of applications. Thus, detailed information on the bio-inspired nanomaterials and their multi-font applications must be obtained in order to realize their high potential to the maximum. With this aspect, the present book aims to discuss elaborately the different biomaterials used for nanoparticles synthesis and their potential applications in multi-disciplinary fields. The synthesis part will cover the extraction process of biocomponents, synthesis of metal nanoparticles, metal oxide nanostructures and nanocomposite materials, mechanism of reducing and stabilizing process, stability of nanomaterials and the characterization of the bioinspired nanomaterials. The application part includes microbicidal property, photocatalytic degradation and disinfection, optical and electrochemical sensors, SERS, drug delivery and energy-related processes. Individual chapters are allocated for every process to elaborately discuss the functions of bioinspired nanomaterials towards particular application. The recent progress in developing bioinspired composites and the perspectives on future opportunities in various applications will also be discussed in this book.
