Abstract Share this page

Rhamnolipid (RL) from Pseudomonas aeruginosa was dissolved in distilled water with concentration equivalent to its critical micelle concentration (CMC). Silver nanoparticles (SNP) synthesized in the RL colloid were found to be stable for more than 1 month. Further, after 1 month when the SNP in RL colloid (SNPRL) were exposed to NaCl solution it took about 60 mg/ml as compared to 2 mg NaCl/ml in the case of SNP colloid for degrading silver nanoparticles. The inference suggests that the RL must undergo vesicle formation and to prevent silver nanoparticle exposure to NaCl.
