A model system of a composite based on mixes of hydrophobic (AM1-300) and hydrophilic (A-300) silicas, yeast cells, water, and n-decane was created. The influence of nanosilicas on the intensity of growth of yeast genus Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated. It was shown that the presence of the composite provides the vital activity of yeast cells even in the absence of a nutrient medium. It was found that small concentrations of the mixture of nanosilicas can stimulate the growth of cells biomass. Our results indicate that the created nanobiocomposite is an effective biodestructor of hydrocarbons in aqueous medium.
