Abstract [en]

With a view of achieving up-scaled nutrition-driven biomimetic assembly of gold nanoparticles, the self-assembly of glutamate- or chitosan stabilized colloidal gold was attempted using viable microbial cells as templates in nutrient rich or poor assembly environment. The likelihood of achieving self-assembly given the type of microbial template, nanoparticle stabilization and predominant biochemical conditions is discussed. While the realization of industrially useful microcomponents from the assembly route maybe technically remote as yet, it was found that present nanoparticles and suitable assembly environment find immediate application in conventional microscopy or as contrast enhancers in the routine study of microbial cell morphology.
