Reports from VIT University Describe Recent Advances in Nanoparticles (Biosynthetic trends and future aspects of bimetallic nanoparticles and its medicinal applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Research findings on Nanoparticles are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Tamil Nadu, India, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Recently, in all over the world, nanotechnology plays a major role in various applications. Most of the researchers focused their work on bimetallic nanoparticles due to their several modes or mechanisms of synthesis such as chemical, physical, and biosynthesis methods."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from VIT University, "These nanoparticles are of great interest due to their enormous applications and catalytic activities. Currently, syntheses of bimetallic nanoparticles using different sources of natural products are focused due to their advantage of being nontoxic to human and environment. To our knowledge, there is no report on the review of bimetallic nanoparticles and their medicinal applications."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Taking this fact into account, we discussed the various synthesizing methods of bimetallic nanoparticles and their application related to biology."
