The biomanufacture of two types of platinum bionanoparticle (bioNP) using Escherichia coli MC4100(1% and 20% by mass metal loading) together with a method for both liberating the nanoparticles (NPs) from the bacterial layer and their subsequent critical cleaning is reported. The possibility of an enantiomeric excess of chiral kink sites forming on the surface of the Pt nanoparticles produced by the bacteria was investigated using the electrooxidation of D- and L-glucose as the chiral probe… CONTINUE READING
