A progressive approach on inactivation of bacteria using silver–titania nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

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.
