Nano-MgO is a good bactericide but with strong alkalinity in water due to its rapid hydrolysis. To control its hydrolysis rate and keep its bactericidal properties, we synthesized nano-MgO microspheres using chitosan-alginate system in this study. The synthesized nano-MgO release-controlled microspheres (nMgO-RCM) were with 0.98-1.20mm of particle sizes… CONTINUE READING
