Biosynthesis of Metal and Oxide Nanoparticles Using Orange Juice
Orange juice negotiated biosynthesis of silver and zinc oxide nanoparticles are reported. The synthesis is performed near to room temperature. X-ray and transmission electron microscopy analyses are performed to ascertain the formation of silver and zinc oxide nanoparticles. Individual nanoparticles as well as a few aggregates are found. The lattice strain is estimated using Wlliamson-Hall approach. A possible involved mechanism for the biosynthesis of nano silver and zinc oxide has also been proposed. The use of orange juice for the synthesis of silver and zinc oxide nanoparticles offers the benefit of eco-friendliness and amenability for large scale production through scaling up.

More about this publication?
- Bionanoscience attempts to harness various functions of biological macromolecules and integrate them with engineering for technological applications. It is based on a bottom-up approach and encompasses structural biology, biomacromolecular engineering, material science, and engineering, extending the horizon of material science. The journal aims at publication of (i) Letters (ii) Reviews (3) Concepts (4) Rapid communications (5) Research papers (6) Book reviews (7) Conference announcements in the interface between chemistry, physics, biology, material science, and technology. The use of biological macromolecules as sensors, biomaterials, information storage devices, biomolecular arrays, molecular machines is significantly increasing. The traditional disciplines of chemistry, physics, and biology are overlapping and coalescing with nanoscale science and technology. Currently research in this area is scattered in different journals and this journal seeks to bring them under a single umbrella to ensure highest quality peer-reviewed research for rapid dissemination in areas that are in the forefront of science and technology which is witnessing phenomenal and accelerated growth.
