Myco-Synthesis, Characterization of Nanomaterials and its Agricultural Applications: Scope and Challenges

Khadeeja Parveen and Lalita Ledwani

Research Article

Myco-synthesis of nanomaterials is new and developing area of research in recent years due to its broad variety of applications in different fields. It is considered a cost-effective, less toxic and eco-friendly way of synthesizing nanomaterials using fungi. The present article covers the synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) using fungi cultures varieties namely Penicillium, Aspergillus, Mucor, Trichoderma and Rhizopus. Synthesized nanomaterials were characterized using different techniques. The impact of synthesized nanomaterials on the growth of cauliflower and rice seedlings was investigated in the current study. Based on the experimental results, it was observed that despite having the huge potential of myco-synthesized nanomaterial in agriculture, a lot of further research needs to be carried out to make it more variable for field applications.
