Silver nanoparticle formation in different sizes induced by peptides identified within split-and-mix libraries.


Split-and-mix libraries are an excellent tool for the identification of peptides that induce the formation of Ag nanoparticles in the presence of either light or sodium ascorbate to reduce Ag(+) ions. Structurally diverse peptides were detected in colorimetric on-bead screenings that generate Ag nanoparticles of different sizes, as confirmed by SEM and X… (More)
