Bactericidal activity of Ag-doped multi-walled carbon nanotubes and the effects of extracellular polymeric substances and natural organic matter.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the bactericidal mechanisms of Ag-doped multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) nanoparticles (Ag(0)/MWCNTs) to Escherichia coli DH5α. The contributions of silver ion dissolution, reactive species, and direct contact on bacteria inactivation were systematically determined. The relatively higher survival rate of… (More)
