Microwave Synthesis of Gold Nanoparticles Using Pineapple Extract

Shyamal Mandal, Juwesh Binong


Nanotechnology emerged as an admirable technology in most of the engineering applications. In other word they are ruling the world for the past few decades and expected to play a dominant hold in future. They have broad class of applications in most fields some predominant includes biotechnology, pharmacology, optics, electronics, energy and environment. The extremely small size of material (1-100nm) creates a large surface area in relation to their volume, which makes them highly reactive, compared to bulk form of the same materials. In recent times nanomaterials are used in various applications such as therapeutics, antimicrobial agents, transfection vectors, and fluorescent labels. Gold nanoparticle synthesis by the green route has become the latest development. Another advantage of synthesize gold nanoparticles with fruit juice as a capping agent less chemical residue. The gold solvent can preserved for long time. Gold nanoparticle (AuNPs) thus synthesised were characterised by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) to confirm their size, shape and composition. These gold nanoparticles have versatile applications as biomarker and cancer therapy.
