We report a novel biochemical method based on the sacrificial hydrogen strategy to synthesize bimetallic gold (Au)-palladium (Pd) nanoparticles (NPs) with a core/shell configuration. The ability of Escherichia coli cells supplied with H(2) as electron donor to rapidly precipitate Pd(II) ions from solution is used to promote the reduction of soluble Au(III).(More)
Palladised cells of Desulfovibrio desulfuricans and Shewanella oneidensis have been reported as fuel cell electrocatalysts but growth at scale may be unattractive/costly; we have evaluated the potential of using E. coli, using H2/formate for Pd-nanoparticle manufacture. Using ‘bio-Pd’ made under H2 (20 wt%) cyclic voltammograms suggested electrochemical(More)
