Green Biosynthesis of Nanoparticles: Mechanisms and Applications.


Green Biosynthesis of Nanoparticles: Mechanisms and Applications

Edited by Mahendra Rai and Clemens Posten

CABI Publishing


235 pages




Editors Rai and Posten present this compilation of research in the emerging field of "green nano" focused on production of nanoparticles using organismal machinery. The first contribution introduces history and utility potential of nanoparticles in medicine. Use of biological components as a synthetic strategy to reduce energy costs is then introduced. A variety of biological synthetic systems are discussed, including algae, diatoms and chrysophytes, bacteria, and yeasts, as well as processes that utilize nonliving biologically derived components, such as plant extracts to modulate redox properties of the synthetic environment, isolated proteins with useful template shapes, and chelators to control size. Distributed in the US by Stylus Publishing.
