Preparation and Effectiveness of Antibacterial Hydroxyapatite Powder Containing Silver


Article Preview

A method of the preparation of an antibacterial ceramic powder is introduced in this paper. Hydroxyapatite is selected to absorb tightly and retain silver for antibacterial ceramic powder. The effect of antibacterial properties against bacterium of S.aureus and E.coli are tested. This antibacterial ceramic has sufficient antibacterial power. The antibacterial effectiveness of this antibacterial powder can reach almost 100%.
