Biosynthesized Gold Nanocatalyst Capable To Detect And Clean Industrial Pollutants

Gold, platinum and silver nanoparticles have received great attention from researchers due to their usefulness for the sustainability of the environment. Among these noble metal nanoparticles, gold is the most important due to its higher biocompatibility, long-term stability, and resistance towards oxidation. Moreover, gold nanoparticles (GNPs) have found important applications in bioremediation and several other aspects in the industry. Apart from physical and chemical processes for synthesizing GNPs, microbial synthesis is very important since this process is clean, cost-effective, and...
