PMID:  24925045     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
Here we offer a comprehensive review of the applications of biosynthesized metallic nanoparticles (NPs). Biosynthesis of metallic NPs is the subject of recent reviews, which focus on the various "bottom up" bio fabrication methods and characterization of final products. Numerous applications exploit the advantages of biosynthesis over chemical or physical NP syntheses, including lower capital and operating expenses, reduced environmental impacts, and superior biocompatibility and stability of the NP products. The key applications reviewed here include biomedical applications, especially antimicrobial applications but also including imaging applications; catalytic applications such as reduction of environmental contaminants, and electrochemical applications including sensing. The discussion of each application is augmented with a critical review of the potential for continued development.
