This Symposium is aimed at attracting a multidisciplinary audience and speakers who are interested in developing methods for the “green synthesis” of nanomaterials using biological means, ranging from organisms (bacteria, fungi, plants) to supramolecular structures (biological extracts, tissues, etc.) and biological (macro)molecules, and for their characterisation, including instrumental techniques. Since such biogenic nanomaterials (particularly, nanoparticles of noble metals and metalloids, quantum dots) may have a wide range of compositions, sizes and shapes and be associated with bioorganic capping layers (i.e., functionalised), of interest and importance are instrumental, e.g. spectroscopic approaches for characterising both their nano-core and the biomacromolecular outer shell.
