Antibacterial action of Ag-containing MFI zeolite at low Ag loadings

Author affiliations

Abstract

We show that Ag-containing zeolites are highly effective against Staphylococcus aureus (SA) bacteria even at low Ag loadings and in the presence of high (109 CFU per mL) bacterial concentrations. At short contact times the bactericidal efficiency correlates strongly with Ag+ release. At longer times data dispersion is higher, probably as a consequence of bacterial metabolism.
