Microorganisms, their cell filtrates, and live biomass have been utilized for synthesizing various gold nanoparticles. The shape, size, stability as well as the purity of the bio synthesized nanoparticles become very essential for application purpose. In the present study, gold nanoparticles have been synthesized from the supernatant, live cell filtrate,(More)
This paper presents the fabrication and characterization of zinc oxide micro-flowers and their antibacterial activity. The micro-flowers of zinc oxide composed of hexagonal nanorods have been prepared via solution process using precursor zinc acetate di-hydrate and sodium hydroxide in 3 h of refluxing time at ~90°C. The antibacterial activities of grown(More)
In the present study we investigated the extra cellular synthesis of gold and silver nanoparticles by using the yeast Candida guilliermondii. The formation of noble metal nanoparticles was monitored by the UV-Visible spectroscopy. As prepared gold and silver nanoparticles showed distinct surface plasmon peaks at 530 nm and 425 nm respectively. Phase and(More)
In the present study, the synthesis of gold and silver nanoparticles was investigated using the culture supernatant broth of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae. Gold nanoparticles were formed within 24 hours of gold ion coming in contact with the culture supernatant broth. In case of silver the reduction process took 48 hours. The synthesized nanoparticles(More)
The antibacterial activity of ZnO nanoparticles has been investigated and presented in this paper. Nanoparticles were prepared via non-hydrolytic solution process using zinc acetate di-hydrate (Zn(CH3COO)2·2H2O) and aniline (C6H5NH2) in 6 h refluxing at ∼65 °C. In the presence of four pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella(More)
Disinfection of Gram-negative bacterium Vibrio cholerae 569B in aqueous matrix by solar-photocatalysis mediated by Ag@ZnO core-shell structure nanocomposite particles was investigated. Silver nanoparticles are synthesized by the reduction of silver perchlorate followed by precipitation of zinc oxide shell and are employed in the photocatalytic disinfection(More)
This study is aimed at the synthesis and characterization of novel Titania nanorods by sol-gel electrospinning technique. The physicochemical properties of the synthesized nanorods were determined by FE-SEM, EDX, TEM, TGA and XRD. We investigated the photocatalytic activity of Titania nanorods for degrading Rhodamine 6G dye and discussed the antibacterial(More)
Spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria through water, is a threat to global public health. Here, we report Fe-doped ZnO nanoparticles (Fe/ZnO NPs) based solar-photocatalytic disinfection (PCD) of multidrug resistant Escherichia coli (MDR E. coli). Fe/ZnO NPs were synthesized by chemical precipitation technique, and when used as photocatalyst for(More)
Water borne pathogens present a threat to human health and their disinfection from water poses a challenge, prompting search for newer methods and newer materials. Disinfection of Gram-negative bacterium Escherichia coli and Gram-positive coccal bacterium Staphylococcus aureus in aqueous matrix was achieved within 60 and 90 minutes respectively at 350C(More)
Water borne pathogens present a threat to human health and their disinfection from water poses a challenge, prompting the search for newer methods and newer materials. Disinfection of the Gram-negative bacterium Escherichia coli and the Gram-positive coccal bacterium Staphylococcus aureus in an aqueous matrix was achieved within 60 and 90 min, respectively,(More)
