Abstract Synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles with different morphologies coupled to minimal chemical interventions for sustainable applications is one of the contemporary topics in the field of nanotechnology. In the current study, heparinized silver nanoparticles were synthesized using a chemical reduction method. Different concentrations of heparin were used to investigate its role in the stability and morphological properties of silver nanoparticles. Interestingly, it has been observed that the concentration of the stabilizing agent heparin plays a pivotal role in dictating the size and shape of the nanosilver. As visualized under a transmission electron microscope, nanosilver with different morphological states such as triangles, truncated triangles, hexagon, and spheres has been experimentally trapped. Such modular property of heparin coated nanosilver has also exhibited substantial differences in their anticoagulation and antimicrobial activities.

Biosynthesis of silver nanoconjugates using agro-waste has drawn the attention of the researchers in recent years due to eco-friendly and low-cost methods. A comparative study on various techniques (sunlight, probe ultrasonication, and microwave irradiation) of silver-bio-nanoconjugate production was carried out using lyophilized pomegranate peel polyphenols. Polyphenols from pomegranate peel extract were identified by LC–MS. The reaction time of each technique for the synthesis of pomegranate p...

Abstract Global antimicrobial crisis and advent of drug resistant fungal strains has substantially distressed disease management for clinicians. Biodegradable silver nanoparticles (AgNps) emerge as an excellent alternative remedial option. In the current study, the anti-biofilm activity of microwave irradiated kappa-carrageenan (CRG) capped AgNps against Candida albicans, and Candida glabrata was investigated in terms of their effect on reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, cellular morpholo...

Abstract Here silver (GA-AgNPs) and gold nanoparticles (GA-AuNPs) were synthesized by an ecofriendly method using antioxidant, gallic acid (GA) simultaneously as capping and reducing agent. Their size ranged between 15 nm and 80 nm, which was controlled or dependent on the feeding ratio of GA. There was a linear relationship between the particle sizes versus the GA content. Moreover, they indicated a negative zeta potential value, which was decreased from −33 mV to −40 mV for AgNPs and from −36 ...

Abstract In this report, polysaccharides – alginate, fucoidan, laminaran – were isolated from marine algae Saccharina cichorioides and Fucus evanescens and their activity as a reducing and stabilizing agents in the biogenic synthesis of silver nanoparticles was evaluated. The cytotoxic and antibacterial properties of obtained nanoparticles were also assessed. It was found that all tested polysaccharides could be used as a reducing agent; however, their catalytic activities varied significantly i...

Abstract In the present research study, we report the synthesis of nano-sized gold (Au) particles immobilized on TiO2 support material. The morphologies of TiO2 support material was tailored and tuned to be rod, tube and microporous materials. The effect of plasmonic gold nanoparticles (NPs) deposited on different morphologies of TiO2 was studied. The prepared catalysts were characterized by various characterization techniques in order to have a detailed insight on the textural properties, morph...

Abstract The present work reported the green synthesis, characterization and antifungal activities of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). The synthesis of AgNPs has been produced by mixing silver nitrate solution with aqueous Melia azedarach leaf extract as a reducing and stabilizing agent for AgNPs. After only 10 min of reaction, the light yellow color of the M. azedarach leaf extract was changed to brown due to the reduction of silver ions to AgNPs, under ambient conditions. The growth of biosynthes...

Heparin-based silver nanoparticles (AgHep-NPs) and gold nanoparticles (AuHep-NPs) were produced by a photochemical method using silver nitrate and chloroauric acid as metal precursors and UV light at 254 nm. UV–Vis spectroscopy graphs showed absorption for AgHep-NPs and AuHep-NPs at 420 nm and 530 nm, respectively. TEM revealed a pseudospherical morphology and a small size, corresponding to 10–25 nm for AgHep-NPs and 1.5–7.5 nm for AuHep-NPs. Their antifungal activity against Candida albicans, I...

Abstract Parameters such as the type of photoinitiator and UV exposure time are investigated in order to tailor the growth of ZnO nanostructures into a variety of dimensions and structures. Based on the type of photoinitiator, by means of specific photoreducing radicals, hollow, doughnut and spherical-shaped ZnO nanoparticles are prepared in one step. 2-Mercapto-thioxanthone (TX-SH), Thioxanthone (TX) and α-aminoketone (Irg-907) are employed as the photoinitiators in formulations of PEGMEA/PEGDA...

A visual assay for the detection of heparinase was developed based on a ternary system of Hg2+-heparin-osmium nanoparticles (OsNPs). First, heparin-capped OsNPs (Heparin-OsNPs) were synthesized by a facile reduction method using hepa-rin as the protecting/stabilizing agent. The oxidase-like activity of Heparin-OsNPs however turned out to be low, which somewhat limits their application. We discovered that Hg2+ can significantly/specifically boost the oxidase-like activity of Heparin-OsNPs via ele...
