Structure and Antibacterial Activity of Copper-Carried Zirconium Phosphates
Copper-carried zirconium phosphates (CuZrPs) were prepared by introducing copper ions into sodium zirconium phosphate (ZrP) through an ion-exchange method, and characterized by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The antibacterial activity and water resistance of CuZrPs were also investigated. The research results indicated that CuZrP-3 containing 10.86 mass% of copper exhibited excellent antibacterial activity and water resistance.
