Preparation of Molybdates with Antibacterial Property
A series of molybdates, Ag2Mo2O7 and AMoO4 (A = Zn, Co), were prepared as a new type of inorganic antibacterial agent via wet chemical routes including hydrothermal synthesis and coprecipitation reaction. The structure and morphology of the samples were characterized with X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. The anti-bacterial properties of the molybdates against Escherichia coli and staphylococcus aureus were examined, showing good antibacterial behavior.
