Synthesis and antibacterial activity of a ZnO-fibre complex

  • 2023
  • Issue: 1
  • Volume: 53
Fawn Dai, Tao Lin, Xia Huang, Mujia Shi, Fei Zhao, Yaojun Yang, Xiang Nong Page: 60 - 74

In this experiment, a ZnO-fibre complex was prepared using the hydrothermal methods of "water solubility," "coupling agent," and "high temperature and high pressure". Binding rate, antibacterial activity, microstructure, and the infrared spectrum were measured using biomimetic digestion, bacterial proliferation tests,…
