"Despite the fact that researches on nanobiotechnology in future may increasingly depend on marine microbes, they are quite under explored for biosynthesis of nanoparticles. The present work was carried out with a view to examine silver nanoparticle biosynthesis potential of a marine-derived fungus Aspergillus flavus. The test fungus could synthesize silver nanoparticles intracellularly at different silver nitrate concentrations within 24h. When exposed to different pH, alkaline pH range supported rapid extracellular biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles. The particles were characterized using analytical techniques like XRD, uv spectrophotometry and transmission electron microscopy.

This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
