  4. Supported palladium nanoparticles synthesized by living plants as a catalyst for Suzuki-Miyaura reactions.

    PLoS ONE 9(1):e87192 (2014) PMID 24489869 PMCID PMC3906157

    The metal accumulating ability of plants has previously been used to capture metal contaminants from the environment; however, the full potential of this process is yet to be realized. Herein, the first use of living plants to recover palladium and produce catalytically active palladium nanopart...

  6. Investigating the toxicity, uptake, nanoparticle formation and genetic response of plants to gold.

    PLoS ONE 9(4):e93793 (2014) PMID 24736522 PMCID PMC3988041

    We have studied the physiological and genetic responses of Arabidopsis thaliana L. (Arabidopsis) to gold. The root lengths of Arabidopsis seedlings grown on nutrient agar plates containing 100 mg/L gold were reduced by 75%. Oxidized gold was subsequently found in roots and shoots of these plants...
