Fabrication and Characterization of Biogenic Selenium Nanoparticles
A biogenic fabrication of selenium nanoparticles has been considered, with characterization of these nanoparticles. Anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria reduce sodium selenite to produce amorphous selenium nanospheres that are more homogeneous in size than biogenic selenium nanoparticles reported in the literature and those obtained by chemical route. These biogenic selenium nanoparticles can be used to investigate the selenium metabolism in microorganisms.
