Zinc oxideZnO Nanoparticle /Nanopowder CAS Number : 1314-13-2
With decreasing particle size to the nanoscale, the release of Zn ions increases, leading to increasing their antibacterial and antifungal activity. This product shows high antifungal activity according to the INSO 10900. The following table clarifies how high its activity against Candida albicans is. Antibacterial & Antifungus activity is an indicator of the product ability to eliminate bacteria. It is obtained by comparison of bacteria number present on control and nanometric samples after 24 hours’ exposure. According to standard, When the antibacterial activity of the product is between 2 and 3, the effectiveness is good. If antibacterial activity is greater than 3, the effectiveness is intense and strong.
The dishes can become a suitable place for the growth of bacteria and fungus by touching contaminated hands and by remaining food on them. Antibacterial nanoparticles inhibit the growth of such microorganisms. ZnO nanoparticles have demonstrated high antibacterial and antifungal activity against human pathogenic microorganisms.
