Noncytotoxic nanosilver structures bring new hope for curing infections

from INIC via Nanowerk News

Researchers managed to completely eliminate the cytotoxicity of silver nanoparticles, which brings new hopes for curing infections. To put it briefly, firstly, they coated silver oxide nanoparticles with a special polymer coating, which tends to absorb silver ions and secondly applied a reducing reagent until a smooth core-shell configuration is achieved. The obtained nanostructure is nontoxic to human cells, in contrast to the conventional silver nanoparticles, and possesses a spectacularly enhanced antibacterial effect. more
