Self-assembled silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) on calf thymus DNA (ct-DNA) chains were synthesized in the presence of 2-mercaptothioxanthone (TX-SH) by use of UV irradiation technique. Thioxanthone itself and its derivatives show interesting photochemical and biological properties. The formation of Ag NPs on the ct-DNA was achieved with and without TX-SH as a thioxanthone derivative photoinitiator which played a photoreducing role for the formation of Ag NPs.
