Studies from University of Kentucky Have Provided New Data on Nanoparticles (Gold nanoparticles: various methods of synthesis and antibacterial applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- A new study on Nanoparticles is now available. According to news reporting originating from Bowling Green, Kentucky, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Colloidal gold is very attractive for several applications in biotechnology because of its unique physical and chemical properties. Many different synthesis methods have been developed to generate gold nanoparticles (AuNPs)."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the University of Kentucky, "Here, we will introduce these methods and discuss the differences between fabrication techniques. We will also discuss ecofriendly synthesis methods being developed to efficiently generate AuNPs without the use of toxic substrates."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Finally, we will discuss the medical applications for AuNPs by highlighting the potential use of intact or functionalized AuNPs in combating bacterial infections."
