Preparation and Antibacterial Properties of Metal Nanoparticles
Earlier metallic nanoparticles (NPs) have been reported for several medical applications. Developments in modern medicine have increased the usage of metallic NPs for medical purposes due to their broad spectrum of biological properties such as anti-fungal, antibacterial, antioxidant, antiviral, analgesic, muscle relaxant, antiangiogenic, and anti-inflammatory activity. In this issue, metal nanoparticles will be presented broadly as prevailing nanomaterials for the eradication of bacteria and/or bacterial infections. The current finding gives an indication that metal-based nanoparticles are very effective in supporting antibacterial potential. Chemically and laser-ablated gold, silver, copper, and iron nanoparticles possess promising antibacterial activity. Metallic nanoparticles (NPs) showed good performance, chemically, physically, and catalytically. This issue will deal with details of the preparation, characterization, and antibacterial activities of different metallic nanoparticles (gold, silver, iron, copper, etc.).
We are pleased to invite all researchers and research teams that are interested in the field of preparation and the antibacterial properties of metal nanoparticles to contribute to this Topic with their manuscript(s). Full original research papers, short communications, and reviews regarding this topic are all welcome.
