Therapeutic Potential of Algal Nanoparticles: A brief review


Pallavi Singh Chauhan, Dhananjay Yadav* and Jun O Jin*  


Recently, the green synthesis of metallic nanoparticles has received tremendous attention as it is a simple approach. The green pathway of biogenic synthesis of metallic nanoparticles through microbes may provide a sustainable and environmental friendly protocol. Green technology is the most innovative technology for various biological activities with no such toxic effect. Reports have shown that algae-mediated synthesis of metal nanoparticles. Algae are widely used for biosynthesis as they grow fast, they handle their biomass on average ten times than plants and easily experimented. In future the production of metal nanoparticle through the use of different microalgae and their biological activity can be explored in different areas such as catalytic, medical diagnosis and antibiofilm applications.
