Bio-inspired synthesis of chiral silver nanoparticles in mucin glycoprotein—the natural choice

Author affiliations

Abstract

A method of synthesizing stable chiral Ag nanoparticles inside a natural mucin glycoprotein is demonstrated. The reaction is carried out without the help of an external reducing agent, by utilizing the reducing properties of the host mucin. A chiral spectrum is detected in the visible range, indicating the formation of a new type of chiral Ag nanoparticles-containing biomaterial.
