Mechanistic Aspects of Biosynthesis of Nanoparticles by Several Microbes

  title={Mechanistic Aspects of Biosynthesis of Nanoparticles by Several Microbes},
  author={F. Ramezani and Moazzameh Ramezani and Saeid Talebi},
While a large number of microbial species are capable of producing metal NPs, mechanism of nanoparticle biosynthesis is very important. The metabolic complexity of viable microorganisms complicates the analysis and identification of active species in the nucleation and growth of metal NPs. Strategies such as enzymatic oxidation or reduction, sorption on the cell wall and, in some cases, subsequent chelating with extracellular peptides or polysaccharides have been developed and used by… CONTINUE READING
