Abstract:

This study explores the synthesis of titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2NPs) mediated by Spirulina platensis (S. platensis) and presents the corresponding X-ray diffraction (XRD) results. The analysis of the XRD patterns confirms the successful formation of crystalline nanoparticles, with distinct peaks aligning with the anatase phase of titanium dioxide. The utilization of S. platensis as a mediator not only facilitates the generation of TiO2NPs but also introduces a bio-friendly and sustainable dimension to the synthesis process. The anatase phase is known for its advantageous properties, including photocatalytic activity and stability, suggesting the potential of the synthesized nanoparticles for applications such as environmental remediation, catalysis, and photovoltaic devices. This study contributes valuable insights into the S. platensis-mediated synthesis of TiO2NPs, emphasizing their promising prospects for diverse technological applications. Further research can delve into optimizing synthesis parameters to enhance nanoparticle properties, promoting their effective utilization in various fields.
