Abstract

Interaction of Chrysosporium sps. and Aspergillus sps. with aqueous AgNO3 was investigated for synthesis of silver nanoparticles. Biological reduction and extracellular synthesis of silver nanoparticles in 28 hour at 270C and pH 5.6 was done. The nanometallic dispersion was characterized by surface plasmon absorbance measuring at 424 – 530 nm for Ag nanoparticles. High resolution transmission electron microscopy showed the formation of silver nanoparticles in magnification of 50-100 nm. XRD analysis of the silver nanoparticles confirmed the formation of silver nanoparticles at average size of 29.18 nm.
