Biological synthesis of strontium carbonate crystals using the fungus Fusarium oxysporum.

Abstract

The total biological synthesis of SrCO3 crystals of needlelike morphology arranged into higher order quasi-linear superstructures by challenging microorganisms such as fungi with aqueous Sr2+ ions is described. We term this procedure "total biological synthesis" since the source of carbonate ions that react with aqueous Sr2+ ions is the fungus itself. We… (More)
