What is it about?

In this research, we have focused on the antibacterial effects of nanostructured materials including hematite and carbon quantum dots@hematite on Gram-positive, S. aureus, and Gram-negative, E. coli, bacterial strain under dark and visible light irradiation.

Why is it important?

Increasing bacterial resistance through evolutionary processes towards conventional antibiotics such as penicillin and amoxicillin is a major global health concern in current era. Owing to their multiple mechanisms of bactericidal action, metal oxides would serve as a new class of effective disinfectants with different mechanism compared to the conventional antibiotics. Here, we introduced hematite-based nanostructured materials as antibacterial agent.


I hope the healthy life and well-being for humankind in the world without disease. So, because of the responsibility, the scientists try to be more sensitive to what happens around.
