Author(s): Nazeruddin GM, Khursheed Ahmad, Shaikh YI, Prasad SR, Prasad NR, Attar YA, Patil PS

We are reporting for the first time the synthesis of cadmium nanoparticles assisted by cow urine. These NPs exhibit excellent antimicrobial activity against test micro-organism such as Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Also the synthesized nanoparticles show synergetic effectiveness with common broad spectrum antibiotic tetracycline. X-ray diffraction pattern of reaction product confirmed the formation of cadmium nanoparticles.
