Silver Nanoparticles as Nanofungicide and Plant Growth Promoter: Evidences from Morphological and Chlorophyll ‘a’ Fluorescence Analysis

Manisha Bawskar; Sunita Bansod; Dnyaneshwar Rathod; Carolina Alves dos Santos; Pramod Ingle; Mahendra Rai; Aniket Gade

Volume 12, Issue 10 , October 2021, , Pages 1-7


  Fungal infections are major issue in agricultural crop plants that affects the growth of plant causing huge economic losses. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have shown antimicrobial effects. Here, we report the potential application of phytostabilized AgNPs as a novel nanofungicide and growth promoter in ...  Read More

Harsha Pinjarkar; Swapnil Gaikwad; Avinash P. Ingle; Aniket Gade; Mahendra Rai

Volume 7, Issue 12 , December 2016, , Pages 1010-1014


  In the present study, the extracellular phycofabrication (synthesis by algae) of silver nanoparticles was demonstrated using algae i.e. Spirogyra sp. recovered from the fresh water. The reduction of silver ions present in the aqueous solution of silver sulphate (Ag2SO4) was done by the cell filtrate ...  Read More

Sequentially Reduced Biogenic Silver-gold Nanoparticles With Enhanced Antimicrobial Potential Over Silver And Gold Monometallic Nanoparticles

Dipali Nagaonkar; Mahendra Rai

Volume 6, Issue 4 , April 2015, , Pages 334-341


  Bimetallic nanoparticles have emerged up as advanced nanomaterials due to the synergism between two metallic nanoparticles in core-shell or alloy arrangement. Moreover, bioinspired synthesis of nanoparticles is an evergreen approach of nanobiosciences. In this experiment, we have fabricated silver, gold ...  Read More
