Similarly, a number of different yeasts were reported to form gold nanoparticles of spherical, triangular, and hexagonal morphologies throughout the cell mainly in the cytoplasm (Gericke and Pinches 2006b). Agnihotri et al. (2009) reported that the tropical marine yeast, Yarrowia lipolytica NCIM 3589, was able to synthesize gold nanoparticles associated with the cell wall. Though yeasts have been used to synthesize intracellular nanoparticles for several years, recently silver nanoparticles have been synthesized extracellularly by a silver-tolerant yeast strain, MKY3, when challenged with Ag+ ions in the log phase of growth.

(2016) Nanomaterial Biosynthesis by Plants Plants, also called green plants, are living organisms of the kingdom Planate including multicellular groups. The rate of reduction of metal ions using plants has been found to be much faster as compared with other biological systems and the stable formation of metal nanoparticles has been reported. Generally, using plants for nanoparticle synthesis can be advantageous over other biological systems such as microbial route, because it eliminates the elaborate process of maintaining cell cultures and can also be suitably scaled up for large-scale synthesis of nanoparticles (Ahmed and Ikram 2015; Ahmed et al.
