A novel green and template free approach for the synthesis of gold nanorice and its utilization as a catalyst for the degradation of hazardous dye.


Herein, we describe a simple, green and template free method for the production of rice shaped gold nanostructures using an aqueous extract of the egg shells of Anas platyrhynchos. The synthesized nanoparticles were characterized by UV-visible, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected area electron diffraction pattern (SAED) and FT-IR studies. The… (More)
