Abstract

Fungal nanosynthesis of ternary CuAlO2 phase is achieved at 50 degrees C. This phase is chemically difficult to synthesize at low temperatures because of the incompatible oxidation chemistry of Cu and Al. The synthesized protein-capped water-dispersible nanoparticles show blue luminescence and radio-frequency absorption (see figure).
