Cordy gold nanoparticles

Cordi Gold nanoparticles (Cor-AuNPs) which is the result of research by scientists from four Indian institutes have recently earned an international patent from Germany.

What are Cordy gold nanoparticles?

  • These nanoparticles, derived from the synthesis of the extracts of Cordyceps militaris and gold salts, could make drug delivery in the human body faster and safer.

  • Cordyceps militaris is a parasitic fungus. Gold salts are ionic chemical compounds of gold generally used in medicine. 

  • Cordyceps militaris, known as the super mushroom for its tremendous medicinal properties, combines bioactive components in the synthesis of gold nanoparticles.

  • The wild Cordyceps mushroom is found in the eastern Himalayan belt.

  • Biosynthesized nanogold particles indicate a new application of nanoparticles in the development of therapeutic drugs that can be made into ointments, tablets, capsules and other forms.
