Biosynthesis of monodisperse gold nanoparticles by green alga Rhizoclonium and associated biochemical changes

In search for a suitable algal bioreagent for monodisperse (homogenous mixture of same size and shape) gold nanoparticle production, a eukaryotic green alga Rhizoclonium fontinale was found to produce spherical (~16 nm size) nanoparticles, when exposed to 15 mg L−1 auric chloride solution at pH 9 for 72 h. In this connection, the effects of different… CONTINUE READING
