Abstract:

Metallic nanoparticles have fascinated scientist for over a century and are now heavily utilized in biomedical sciences and engineering. They are a focus of interest because of their huge potential in nanotechnology. In this research, gold nanoparticles manufactured extracellularly by Bacillus sp. SDNS were evaluated for application as antibacterial agent and in glass staining. AuNPs(1-6 nm)showed antagonistic activity towards Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus faecalis with highest activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa recording MIC of 3.125 µg/ml. Glass pieces stained with AuNPs showed different colors hues.


Keywords: Gold Nanoparticles, AuNPs,  Bacillus sp. SDNS, Antibacterial, Glass staining.
