Abstract

Extracellular biosynthesis of monodisperse gold nanoparticles was discussed. Actinomycete, a microorganism, was used to react with aqueous chloroaurate ions. Results showed that there is a reduction of the metal ions and stabilization of gold nanoparticles which is due to an enzymatic process.
