  • Biomedical Applications of Biosynthesized Gold Nanoparticles from Cyanobacteria: an Overview

    1 month ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    Recently there had been a great interest in biologically synthesized nanoparticles as potential therapeutic agents. The shortcomings of conventional non-biological synthesis methods such as generation of toxic byproducts, energy consumptions, and involved cost have shifted the attention towards green syntheses of NPs. Among noble metal NPs, gold nanoparticles are the most extensively used ones, owing to the unique physicochemical properties. AuNPs have potential therapeutic applications, as those are synthesized with biomolecules as reducing and stabilizing agent(s). The green...
