Biological Production of Selenium Nanoparticles from Waste Waters

Abstract:

Article Preview

Due to the photoelectric, semi-conducting and X-ray-sensing properties, selenium is an element of great economic potential. Since nanomaterials display special properties compared to bulk particles, the production of selenium nanostructures (wires, rods or spherical particles) has attracted much attention. In this study, alternative approaches to classical synthesis were investigated, producing selenium nanospheres biologically during treatment of contaminated water.
