Synthesis of cadmium sulfide (CdS) semiconductor nanoparticles within a prokaryotic organism is reported for the first time by Sweeney et al. . This paper demonstrates the utility of microorganisms to perform chemistries outside the scope of their “normal” metabolism and offers an environmentally benign synthesis of CdS nanoparticles.
