  • Elemental selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) are useful in medicine, environmental remediation and in material science. Biosynthesized SeNPs (BioSeNPs) by bacteria are cheap, eco-friendly and have a lower cytotoxicity in comparison with chemically synthesized ones. Organic matters were found to cap on the surface of BioSeNPs, but the functions were still not entirely clear. The purified BioSeNPs were coated in a thick layer of organic substrates observed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM… CONTINUE READING
