Extracellular bacterial production of doped magnetite nanoparticles
Microorganisms have been producing nanoparticles for billions of years and by controlling and tuning this productivity they have the potential to provide novel materials using environmentally friendly manufacturing pathways. Metal-reducing bacteria are a particularly fertile source of nanoparticles and their reduction of Fe (III) oxides leads to the formation of ferrite spinel nanoparticles, especially magnetite, Fe 3 O 4 . The high yields produced by extracellular biomineralising processesdoi:10.1039/9781849734844-00102 fatcat:o4wsfky52jdsthezuelnumomue
