Synthesis and Evaluation of Antibacterial Titanate Nanotubes

Abstract:

Article Preview

Antibacterial titanate nanotubes were synthesized by alkali digesting of metatitanic acid via hydrothermal route, following by cation-exchanged and immobilized with Ag+, Zn2+ and Cu2+. The conditions for nanotube synthesis and ion exchange were investigated; the microstructures of as-synthesized nanotubes were characterized by XRD, SEM, XPS and DTA/TG. The antibacterial performance of cation-doped titanate nanotubes was tested and evaluated by Escherichia Coli. and staphylococcus aureus.
