Antibacterial nanoparticles: enhanced antibacterial efficiency of coral-like crystalline rhodium nanoplates

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper deals with the newly found antibacterial efficiency of coral-like crystalline Rh nanoplates. Rh nanoplates with rough surface morphology synthesized by inverse-directional galvanic replacement exhibited highly enhanced antibacterial efficiency compared to Rh3+ ion and Rh nanospheres. The observed antibacterial efficiency was comparable to Ag nanoplates, a well-known anticancer nano-agent. Results clearly demonstrate that the composition and morphology of a nanostructure play significant roles in antibacterial effects.
