Thus a visual inspection was routinely performed. B Color of GNPs solution. Biological systems are capable of synthesizing a remarkably diverse range of inorganic materials. Free amine, carboxyl or phosphate groups present in the protein can interact with gold nanoparticles [32,37] and possibly involved in stabilization of GNPs.

Received January 16 th; revised February 23 rd; accepted April 5 th Gold nanoparticles GNPs synthesized on cell surface were isolated by placing the mycelial suspension on a bath sonicator and sonicated for 15 minutes.

However, bio application of large nano particles greater than 50 nm are limited due to reduced endocytosis and poor renal clearance [30]. The selected area electron diffraction pattern SAED of gold nanoprism Figure 4 B indicated that the entire nanoparticle was nanocrystalline in nature B A selected area electron diffraction pattern of GNPs.

The d-spacings calculated from FFT images of a triangular gold nanoparticle and a gold nanoprism were 2. 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. A Formation of GNPs on mycelial biomass resulting purple color.

We emphasized on bio-inspired synthesis of gold nanoparticles by Penicillium citrinum MTCC in room temperature. nanoprismx


In recent years the synthesis of stable gold nanoparticles is one of the most active areas of research in the field of nanotechnology because of their applications in a number of areas like bio-imaging, bio-medicine, bio-sensors, bio-labels, catalysis and others []. Moreover, the synthesis of other anisotropic nanostrctures of gold like nano rod, cube, triangle which are present in smaller quantities as per TEM images may be achieved by further tuning the synthesis protocol using the fungus.

Metal nanoparticles are produced mainly by means of chemical processes involving chemical aggressive reducing agents e. Development of strain in crystals of gold nanoprism was observed from the analysis of crystals. The biomolecules present in the cell surface of Penicillum citrinum may perform three important functions: The patterns of SAED synrhesis indexed according to,and reflections of fcc gold on the basis of their d-spacings of 2.

Figure 1 B represents GNPs solution collected from mycelial surfaces following sequential sonication and filtration.

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 This report provides for the first time rapid novel environment friendly cell surface based synthesis of stable gold nanoprisms at room temperature using Penicillium citrinum MTCC biomass.

The purple colour of Penicillium citrinum biomass is due to the interaction trianhular GNPs with light [21]. Then the biomass was harvested by sieving through a plastic filter and biologifal several times with double distilled water to remove any traces of media components.

Thus d-spacing of plane of gold nanoprism revealed a deviation from the standard value of fcc gold crystal 2. In all these respects biological approach would become a better choice for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles GNPs. There are other reports which showed the intracellular synthesis of spherical GNPs in live Synthexis plants [12], truncated triangular and spherical GNPs from sun dried Cinamonum camphora leaf extract [13], triangular gold nanoprism from lemon grass extract [14], hexagonal, prism and spherical shaped GNPs using plant surfactants [15], triangular gold nano plates using algal solutions of Chlorella vulgaris [16] and Sargassum sp.


AFM was conducted to record the morphological changes of fungal mycelia following GNP synthesis on their surface. The GNPs then resuspended in double distilled water and again centrifuged. FTIR spectroscopy data also supported the fact that biomolecules were present in the surface. The surface plasma resonance of GNPs at nm was due to collective coherent electronic oscillation of metal nanopartticles in presence of electromagnetic field of light.

Formation of gold nanoparticles resulted in a sharp colour change from yellow to dark pinkish.

Journal of Biomaterials and Nanobiotechnology Vol. Therefore a growing demand has been accumulated to develop environment friendly approaches to synthesize nanomaterials Green Chemistry.

Biological synthesis of triangular gold nanoprisms.

The chemical synthesis of metal nanoprisms in large quantities using sphere-triangle shape transformation [] or seeded growth nanolrisms has been found to be more difficult. Biomaterials have inspired a growing research effort in which biomolecules are used to synthesize and assemble materials in the laboratory. The zeta potential of GNPs was measured to know their colloidal stability and the nature of the charge carried in their surface.
