Ultrasmall silver nanoclusters: Highly efficient antibacterial activity and their mechanisms.


PMID 27921105

Abstract

Silver materials have been widely used as antimicrobial agents. Notably, silver nanoparticles have emerged as a new generation of nanoproducts for biomedical and environmental applications in recent years. However, ultrasmall silver nanoclusters (NCs) (∼2 nm) have rarely been used to kill bacteria and their antibacterial mechanisms have not yet been fully elucidated. Herein, we studied the antibacterial activities of bifunctional fluorescent DHLA-AgNCs against three types of bacteria. The results showed that DHLA-AgNCs exhibited excellent antibacterial activities against Gram-negative E. coli, which could efficiently inhibit the growth of E. coli DH 5α and E. coli DSM 4230 cells at a concentration of 15 and 10 μg mL
