Nowadays precious metal recovery technologies use harmful chemicals that may represent a risk to the environment and public health. This is the reason why it is necessary to develop clean, non-toxic and environmentally friendly procedures to recover precious metals. The use of biologicalorganisms in synthesis and assembly of nanoparticles has received increasing attention. There areeco-friendly “green” methods for the synthesis of noble metal nanoparticles using bacteria,actinomycetes, yeast, fungi, and plant extracts. Sugar beet pulp, an industry waste, has been showneffective in the reduction of Au(III) to Au(0) and extracellular synthesis of nanoparticles.The interest in nanoparticles synthesis research is now focused on the shape selectivity and sizemonodispersity. In this work, we report on the biological synthesis of several shape goldnanoparticles. Many properties of metal nanoparticles such as optical, electronic, magnetic andcatalytic properties strongly depend on their size and shape.It is shown that nanoparticles shape can be controlled by varying the initial pH value. The shapevaries from triangular and geometrical nanoparticles to nanorods and nanowires. For long reactiontimes, gold biosorption instead of nanoparticle formation took place. UV-vis spectra andtransmission electron micrographs showed nanoparticles of several shapes and sizes. Goldbiosorption on biomass surface was detected by scanning electron microscopy. In order to resolvethe mechanism of reduction of gold (III), the evolution of pH and potential was measured.
