Biological synthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles using apiin as reducing agent.
A novel strategy for the biological synthesis of anisotropic gold and quasi-spherical silver nanoparticles by using apiin as the reducing and stabilizing agent is reported, expected to be of application in hyperthermia of cancer cells and in IR-absorbing optical coatings. Expand
Phyllanthin-assisted biosynthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles: a novel biological approach
The anisotropic gold and spherical–quasi-spherical silver nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized by reducing aqueous chloroauric acid (HAuCl4) and silver nitrate (AgNO3) solution with the extract ofExpand
Green Synthesized Silver and Gold Nanoparticles for Colorimetric Detection of Hg2+, Pb2+, and Mn2+ in Aqueous Medium

A sunlight-induced rapid synthesis of silver nanoparticles using sodium salt of N-cholyl amino acids and its antimicrobial applications.
The antimicrobial activity of N-cholyl amino acid capped AgNPs against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeroginosa using Mueller Hinton broth and the antifungal activity against Candida albicans, Candida krusei and Candida tropicalis using RPMI broth were determined by MIC studies as per CLSI guidelines.
