Abstract/OtherAbstract:
FROM THE CLINICAL EDITOR: This review provides an overview of various methods of synthesis of metallic nanoparticles by biological means. Many chemical and physical procedures used for synthesis of metallic nanoparticles are fraught with major problems: toxic solvents, hazardous by-products, high energy consumption. Over the past several years, plants, algae, fungi, bacteria, and viruses have been used for production of low-cost, energy-efficient, and nontoxic metallic nanoparticles.
