A progressive approach on inactivation of bacteria using silver-titania nanoparticles. Academic Article uri icon


  • A silver inserted metal oxide (Ag-TiO2) has been demonstrated to be an effective biocidal agent against prokaryotic microbes found in water. Transmission electron microscopy and electron energy loss spectroscopy indicated cellular damage after co-incubation with the nanocomposite, showing concomitant leakage of ions, which are critical for cell survival.
