Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles in Photosynthetic Plants

Gold nanoparticles with a size range of 220 nm have been synthesized using the live Alfalfa plants. Nanoparticles of Ag, Ni, Co, Zn, and Cu have also been synthesized inside the living plants of Brassica juncea (Indian mustard), Medicago sativa (Alfalfa), and Helianthus annuus (Sunflower).

Formation and Growth of Au Nanoparticles inside Live

For instance gold clusters surrounded by a shell of organic ligands covalently attach to proteins or other biological substances and can be used for labeling in structural biology. In the present report we show the possibility of using live plants for the fabrication of nanoparticles. Alfalfa plants were grown in an AuCl4 rich environment.

Plants with the Midas Touch Formation of Gold

Abstract. In the well known Greek legend the touch of King Midas would convert anything to metallic gold. Recently, a team working at SSRL lead by Professor Jorge Gardea Torresdey from the University of Texas at El Paso have shown that ordinary alfalfa plants can accumulate very small particles (nanoparticles) of metallic gold (1).

Synthesis of metallic nanoparticles using plant extracts

Synthesis of silver nanoparticles using a leaf extract of Polyalthia longifolia was reported by Prasad and Elumalai (2011).An average particle size of about 58 nm was obtained. Silver and gold ions could be reduced to nanoparticles using a leaf extract of Cinnamomum camphora (Huang et al., 2007).The reduction was ascribed to the phenolics, terpenoids, polysaccharides and flavones compounds

Investigating the Toxicity, Uptake, Nanoparticle Formation

We used Medicago sativa L. (alfalfa) to study nanoparticle uptake from hydroponic culture using ionic gold as a non nanoparticle control and concluded that nanoparticles between 5 and 100 nm in diameter are not directly accumulated by plants. Gold nanoparticles were only observed in plants exposed to ionic gold in solution.
