Biosynthesis of CdS Nanoparticle using Metal Resistant Bacteria

Authors(2) :-Pinakin Dhandhukia, Dhaval Patel

The metal resistant microorganism may possess the mechanisms to tolerate toxic metal concentrations one of them is to precipitate the metals using a counter ion present in the surrounding medium. In the present study, cadmium (Cd) resistant organisms were isolated from contaminated soil using enrichment and further screened using gradient plate technique for highest Cd resistant organism. Based on the biochemical test, the selected strain CdR3 was identified and belonging to genus Gluconobacter. The CdR3 was able to biosynthesize monodisperse Cd nanoparticles in almost all the conditions tested however the smallest sized obtained at pH 7 and 42?C. FTIR and XRD of nanocrystals formed by Gluconobacter confirm that it was CdS nanoparticle. The particle size distribution of nanoparticle confirms the size of crystals ranging from 0.638 to 1.926 nm which was pH dependent. In addition monodisperse particle synthesis at ambient condition can be achieved using this organism.
