Vancomycin-hybrid bimetallic Au/Ag composite nanoparticles: preparation of the nanoparticles and characterization of the antibacterial activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report vancomycin-hybrid bimetallic nanoparticles (Au/AgNPs@Van) that can adhere to bacterial surfaces with high antibacterial activity. The Ag/AuNPs@Van also show weaker bacterial drug resistance than free vancomycin, and have a low cytotoxicity. Ag/AuNPs@Van has a promising future in the treatment of infectious diseases.
