Microbial production and environmental applications of Pd nanoparticles for treatment of halogenated compounds.

New biological inspired methods were recently developed to recover precious metals from waste streams and to concomitantly produce palladium nanoparticles on bacteria, that is, bio-Pd. This technology offers a variety of opportunities, as the process can considered to be green, tunable, affordable and scalable. The nanoparticle formation and the specific… (More)
