About this book

Introduction

Nanotechnology is a widely emerging field involving interdisciplinary subjects such as biology, physics, chemistry and medicine. A wide variety of microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and algae are employed as biological agents for the synthesis of nanoparticles. Novel routes by which extermophiles can be employed to generate nanoparticles have yet to be discovered.  Thus this book discusses the extremophiles explored for biosynthesis of nanoparticles.  The book is divided into  5 major chapters: (1) Major types of nanoparticles in nanotechnology; (2) Diversity of microbes in the synthesis of nanoparticles; (3) Extremophiles in nanoparticle biosynthesis; (4) Applications of nanopartcles produced by extermophiles (5) Challenges and Future perspectives.
