Formation of gold nanoparticles resulted in a sharp colour change from yellow to dark pinkish. All chemical reagents were purchased from Sigma St. B A selected area electron diffraction pattern of GNPs. The arrow in F indicates the splitting of spots in the FFT image of gold nanoprism. To investigate the physical nature of gold nanoparticles transmission electron microscopic analysis was done.

In our study, GNPs formed a single population in the size range of 10 – 40 nm. Then the biomass was harvested by sieving through a plastic filter and washed several times with double distilled water to remove any traces of media components. Some rod shaped, triangular, cubical, very small circular 3 – 4 nm diameter and rectangular GNPs were present in smaller amounts Figures A and B. So it can be assumed that a micro stress was developed due to the formation of anisotropic nanoprism.

Biological systems are capable of synthesizing a remarkably diverse range of inorganic materials. Each experiment was repeated thrice using freshly grown culture of P.

The ring structure of SAED pattern is a characteristic of polycrystalline gold Thus d-spacing of plane of gold nanoprism revealed a deviation from the standard value of triantular gold crystal 2. A higher magnification image of gold nanoprism is shown in Figure C.


For FTIR spectrum analysis the GNPs were centrifuged at 10, rpm for 10 minutes to remove free proteins or other compounds present in the solution.

FTIR spectroscopy data also supported the fact that biomolecules were present in the surface. Metal nanoparticles are tfiangular mainly by means of chemical processes involving chemical aggressive reducing agents e.

Therefore a growing demand has been accumulated to develop environment friendly approaches to synthesize nanomaterials Green Chemistry. UV-Visible spectra trianhular gold nanoparticles by bio-reduction of Chloroauric acid in aqueous solution was recorded in Jasco UV-Visible spectrophotometer V operated at a resolution of 1 nm in absorption mode.

The chemical synthesis of metal nanoprisms in large quantities using sphere-triangle shape transformation [] or seeded growth [29] has been found to be more difficult. FFT image also showed an elongation of the diffraction reflexes.

The authors would like to thank Shantiswarup Sinha and Prof. Although some rod shaped, triangular, cubical, very small circular 3 – 4 nm diameter and rectangular GNPs were present in smaller amounts Figures 3 A and B. However, there is limited information available regarding the synthesis of GNPs using fungus. The selected area electron diffraction pattern SAED of gold nanoprism Figure 4 B indicated that the entire nanoparticle was nanocrystalline in nature [31].

The patterns of SAED were indexed according to,and reflections of fcc gold on the basis of their trianghlar of 2. Received January 16 th; revised February 23 rd; accepted April 5 th nanopfisms, The physical nature of GNPs indicated that most of the nanoparticles were prism shaped.

Biomaterials triangula inspired a growing research effort in which biomolecules are used to synthesize and assemble materials in the laboratory. The purple colour of Penicillium citrinum biomass is due to the interaction of GNPs with light [21]. The d-spacings calculated from FFT images of a triangular gold nanoparticle and a gold nanoprism were 2. B Color of GNPs solution. It was quite exciting for us to find this bioprocess where mycelial biomass suspended in double distilled water in presence of chloroauric acid could produce GNPs on their surfaces.


Biological synthesis of triangular gold nanoprisms.

Free amine, carboxyl or phosphate groups present in the protein can interact with gold nanoparticles [32,37] and possibly involved in stabilization of GNPs. Typically 2 g biomass fresh weight was dispersed in 20 ml of double distilled water pH 5. Recently cetyltrimethylammonium bromide CTAB has been shown to induce the formation of gold nanorods, triangular prism and spheres through seed mediated approaches depending on iodide contamination present in CTAB which act as shape directing agent [35].

Journal of Biomaterials and Nanobiotechnology Vol. Synthesis of triangular gold nanoprism using lemon grass leaf extract showed large size of nanoprisms ranging from – nm length and truncated vertices [14]. Due to symmetric face centered cubic fcc lattice of gold nanoparticles, the formation of anisotropic structures like cube, prism, star, branched nanoparticles require a selective capping agent during growth The GNPs then resuspended in double distilled water and again centrifuged.

The synthesis of nanoparticles using biological approaches offers several advantages than chemical synthesis like environmentally acceptable solvent, eco friendly reducing and capping agents.

Synthesis of spherical gold nanoparticles GNPs have been reported using the fungus Fusarium oxysporum and Verticillium sp. These systems are resourceful and assemble a vast assortment of materials using precursors that are readily available and abundant in the biosphere. The zeta potential of GNPs was measured to know their colloidal stability and the nature of the charge carried in their surface.
