About this book

This book introduces the principles and mechanisms of the biological synthesis of nanoparticles from microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, viruses, algae, and protozoans. It presents optimization processes for synthesis of microbes-mediated nanoparticles. The book also reviews the industrial and agricultural applications of microbially-synthesized nanoparticles. It also presents the medical applications of green nanoparticles, such as treating multidrug-resistant pathogens and cancer treatment. Further, it examines the advantages and prospects for the synthesis of nanoparticles by microorganisms. Lastly, it also presents the utilization of microbial-synthesized nanoparticles in the bioremediation of heavy metals.
