The ring structure of SAED pattern is a characteristic of polycrystalline gold The selected area electron diffraction pattern SAED of gold nanoprism Figure 4 B indicated that the entire nanoparticle was nanocrystalline in nature The patterns of SAED were indexed according to,and reflections of fcc gold on the basis of their d-spacings of 2.

There are other reports which showed the intracellular synthesis of spherical GNPs in live Alfaalfa 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.

The chemical synthesis of metal nanoprisms in large quantities using sphere-triangle triangklar transformation [] or seeded growth [29] has been found to be more difficult. 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.

Moreover, the synthfsis 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.

B Color of GNPs solution. Metal nanoparticles are produced mainly by means of chemical processes involving chemical aggressive reducing agents e. The authors would like to thank Shantiswarup Sinha and Prof. The selected area electron diffraction pattern SAED of gold nanoprism Figure 4 B indicated that the entire nanoparticle was nanocrystalline in nature [31]. Gold nanoparticles GNPs synthesized on cell surface were isolated by tirangular the mycelial suspension on a bath sonicator and sonicated for 15 minutes.

Received January 16 th; revised February 23 rd; accepted April 5 th 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 [].

Thus this is quite exciting for us to synthesize gold nanoprism for first time using biological approach. GNPs size was found to be in the range of 10 – 40 nm with maximum population centered on 20 nm Figure 2. Sample images were processed using ProScan image processing software. The d-spacings calculated from Biolotical images of a triangular gold nanoparticle and a gold nanoprism were 2. However, bio application of large nano particles greater than 50 nm are limited due to reduced endocytosis and poor renal clearance [30].

The physical nature of GNPs indicated that most of the nanoparticles were prism shaped. Typically 2 g biomass fresh weight was dispersed in 20 ml of double distilled water pH 5.

Biological synthesis of triangular gold nanoprisms.

Each experiment was repeated thrice using freshly grown culture of P. The surface plasma resonance of GNPs at nm was nanoprissm to collective coherent electronic oscillation of metal nanopartticles in presence of electromagnetic field of light.

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]. FFT image also showed an elongation of the diffraction reflexes.

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 We emphasized on bio-inspired synthesis of gold nanoparticles by Penicillium citrinum MTCC in room temperature. Free boilogical, carboxyl or phosphate groups present nanoprisma the protein can interact with gold nanoparticles [32,37] and possibly involved in stabilization of GNPs.

AFM was conducted to record the morphological changes of fungal mycelia following GNP synthesis on their surface. However, there is limited information available regarding the synthesis of GNPs using fungus.

Thus a visual inspection was routinely performed. Triqngular Formation of GNPs on mycelial biomass resulting purple color. The process was repeated for three times and finally the centrifuged part containing GNPs were redispersed in double distilled water and subjected to FTIR spectroscopy.


Thus d-spacing of plane of gold nanoprism revealed a deviation from the standard value of fcc gold crystal 2. Synthesis of bioloigcal gold nanoparticles GNPs have been reported using the fungus Fusarium oxysporum and Verticillium sp.

The zeta potential of GNPs was measured to know their colloidal stability and the nature of the charge carried in their surface. Therefore a growing demand has been accumulated to develop environment friendly approaches to synthesize nanomaterials Green Chemistry. The fringe spacing was 2. In addition gold nanoprism offers several advantages in biomedical applications.

Biological Synthesis of Colloidal Gold Nanoprisms Using Penicillium citrinum MTCC

By conventional chemical and physical methods nanocubes [22], nanorods [23], nanowires [24], nanoplates [25] can be synthesized but that require high environmental cost. So it can biologival 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. To investigate the physical nature of gold syntheesis transmission electron microscopic analysis was done.

The biomolecules present in the cell surface of Penicillum citrinum may perform three important functions: The strain was subcultured on potato dextrose agar PDA. This microbial synthesis of GNPs could be explained by the fact that microorganisms often face metal ions or metals in their environment and thereby developed mechanism to detoxify metals by changing the redox states of metal ions and or intracellular precipitation of metals forming a basis for synthesis of nanoparticles [32].

FTIR analysis also showed that protein molecules were involved in stabilization. The UV-Visible spectral scan of dispersed gold nanoparticles GNPs solution showed absorption maxima at nm due to surface plasma resonance SPR of gold nanoparticles.

All chemical reagents were purchased from Sigma St. The GNPs then resuspended in double distilled water and again centrifuged. The purple colour of Penicillium citrinum biomass is due to the interaction of GNPs with light [21].
