Biosorption and reduction of Au (III) to gold nanoparticles by thiourea modified alginate.


PMID 28038738

Abstract

In this study, modified alginate biosorbent has shown a remarkably selective adsorption of Au (III) ions from multi-metallic solutions containing equal moles of Au (III), Pd (II), Pt (IV), Co (II), Ni (II) and Cu (II) ions under acidic conditions. The maximum uptake capacity of Au (III) was found to be 8.47mmolg
