Composites of Telluride are an extremely rare element most commonly used in combination with other metals to increase their machinability and bioactivity due to its mild toxic nature. Bacteria are currently used to separate a number of elements from their sources, most notably in the bioleaching of Zinc and Silver from their ores. Using biosynthesis method Zn doped AgTe materials were synthesized and characterized by using X-ray Diffractometer, Fourier Transform Spectroscopy and its applications of bacterial results. From structural studies the crystal size was nearly 52 nm, and FTIR spectrometer shows the vibrational frequency of the Zn doped AgTe NPs. Five different bacterial strains both positive and negative and its bioactivity can be measured. The results that were obtained in this research including the Zones of Inhibition (mm) for all the gram positive and gram negative bacteria that were bio assayed in this research.

Gram negative, zinc, silver telluride and Fourier transform spectroscopy.
