Gold nanoparticles are valuable for their distinct properties and nanotechnology applications. Because their properties are controlled in part by nanoparticle size, manipulation of synthesis method is vital, since the chosen synthesis method has a significant effect on nanoparticle size. By aiding mediating synthesis with proteins, unique nanoparticle structures can form, which open new possibilities for potential applications. Furthermore, protein-mediated synthesis favors conditions that are more environmentally and biologically friendly than traditional synthesis methods.
