Use of biologically modified gold nanoparticles (GNPs) as molecular vehicle to ferry potential anti-cancer drug berberine hydrochloride (BHC) using folic acid (FA) as targeting molecule is reported in this work. A tropical fruit peel, Trapa bispinosa is used to fabricate highly monodispersed GNPs, passivated with essential functional groups which were used(More)
We are reporting highly economical plant based method for the production of luminescent water soluble carbon dots (C-dot) using Indian water plant Trapa bispinosa peel extract without adding any external oxidizing agent at 90 °C. C-dots ranging from 5 to 10nm were found in the solution with a prominent green fluorescence under UV-light (λex=365 nm). UV-vis(More)
An economical green-chemistry approach was used for the synthesis of aqueous soluble graphene quantum dots (GQDs) from cow milk for simultaneous imaging and drug delivery in cancer. The GQDs synthesized using one-pot microwave-assisted heating were multi-fluorescent, spherical in shape having a lateral size of ca. 5nm. The role of processing parameters such(More)
An efficient, fast and green method for synthesis of Carbon dots (C-dots) using natural precursor Citrus limone under ultrasonic condition is demonstrated. Such as-synthesized C-dots were further purified using Sucrose density gradient centrifugation method (SDGC) which resulted in the separation of water-soluble, photo luminescent, monodispersed, highly(More)
We present synthesis of biogenic gold nano triangles (GNTs) using Azadirachta indica leaf extract at inherent pH (5.89) and its application in efficient drug delivery of doxorubicin (DOX) (anticancer drug). The main idea was to take advantage of large surface area of GNTs which has 3 dimensions and use the plant peptides coated on these triangles as natural(More)
Use of cysteamine hydrochloride (Cys-HCl) protected gold nanorods (GNRs) as efficient carrier of widely used anti-cancer drug doxorubicin using folic acid as navigational molecule is presented in this work. GNRs were found to have excellent drug loading capacity of >97 %. A detailed comprehension of in vitro drug release profile under ideal physiological(More)
A novel report on microwave assisted synthesis of bright carbon dots (C-dots) using gum arabic (GA) and its use as molecular vehicle to ferry ciprofloxacin hydrochloride, a broad spectrum antibiotic, is reported in the present work. Density gradient centrifugation (DGC) was used to separate different types of C-dots. After careful analysis of the fractions(More)
We report in situ transformation of glutathione-capped red-fluorescent gold nanoclusters (AuNCs) into larger gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) embedded on a copper grid under high energy electron beam of Field Emission Gun Transmission Electron Microscope (FEG-TEM). Electron beam irradiation causes coalescing of individual finer AuNCs into bigger discrete AuNPs as(More)
We report green synthesis of stable silver nanoparticles (SNPs) from Acacia arabica gum and its anti-bacterial activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. UV-Vis spectral analysis of synthesized SNPs showed maximum peak at 462 nm initially and 435 nm after 24 h. Using Transmission Electron microscopy (TEM), the average size of synthesised(More)
We report a simple one-pot microwave assisted "green synthesis" of Graphene Quantum Dots (GQDs) using grape seed extract as a green therapeutic carbon source. These GQDs readily self-assemble, hereafter referred to as "self-assembled" GQDs (sGQDs) in the aqueous medium. The sGQDs enter via caveolae and clathrin-mediated endocytosis and target themselves(More)
