ABSTRACT The properties of the bactericidal action of silver zeolite as affected by inorganic salts and ion chelators were similar to those of silver nitrate. The results suggest that the contact of the bacterial cell with silver zeolite, the consequent transfer of silver ion to the cell, and the generation of reactive oxygen species in the cell are involved in the bactericidal activity of silver zeolite. 

Mechanism of Bactericidal Activity of Silver Nitrate – a Concentration Dependent Bi-Functional Molecule

Silver nitrate imparts different functions on bacteria depending upon its concentration. At lower concentration it induced synthesis of nanoparticles, whereas at higher concentrations it induced cell

The antibacterial activity of biogenic silver and its mode of action

In conclusion, biogenic nanosilver exhibited equal antimicrobial activity compared to ionic silver and can be a valuable alternative for chemically produced nanossilver.

Effect of Silver-Loaded Zeolite on the Susceptibility of Escherichia Coli Against Antibiotics

The result suggests that application of Ag-Z to ward environment might give a good outcome at the treatment with rifampicin and at thetreatment for pathogenic microbe spread through the air, such as tubercle bacilli.

Bactericidal effects of adsorbent on Escherichia coli for use in disinfection of drinking water

A synergistic action of silver (Ag) and groundnut husk carbon was shown, which markedly enhanced inactivation of Escherichia coli, indicating that AdSG was effective as a bactericidal agent and may prove to be economically beneficial in drinking water disinfection.

Review of modified zeolites by surfactant and silver as antibacterial agents

The efficacy of silver sulfadiazine is thought to result from its slow and steady reactions with serum and other sodium chloride-containing body fluids, which permits the slow and sustained delivery of silver ions into the wound environs.
