Reports Summarize Aspergillus Study Results from National Institute of Technology (Biosynthesis of lead selenide quantum rods in marine Aspergillus terreus)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Current study results on Aspergillus have been published. According to news originating from Mangalore, India, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Biosynthesis of fluorescent, semiconductor lead selenide (PbSe) quantum rods was initiated in lead and selenium tolerant marine Aspergillus terreus."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the National Institute of Technology, "TEM and SEM images revealed the formation of rod like structures having an average diameter of 59 nm."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Compositional analysis using EDAX followed by optical and structural characterization by XRD, UV-vis and FTIR spectrophotometry confirmed the biogenesis of crystalline PbSe nanoparticles with quantum confinement effects."
