Effect of doping on structural and optical properties of ZnO nanoparticles: study of antibacterial properties


Sol-gel method was successfully used for synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles doped with 10 % Mg or Cu. The structure, morphology and optical properties of the prepared nanoparticles were studied as a function of doping content. The synthesized ZnO:(Mg/Cu) samples were characterized using XRD, TEM, FTIR and UV-Vis spectroscopy techniques. The samples show hexagonal wurtzite structure, and the phase segregation takes place for Cu doping. Optical studies revealed that Mg doping increases the energy band gap while Cu incorporation results in decrease of the band gap. The antibacterial activities of the nanoparticles were tested against Escherichia coli (Gram negative bacteria) cultures. It was found that both pure and doped ZnO nanosuspensions show good antibacterial activity which increases with copper doping, and slightly decreases with adding Mg.

Effect of the structure on biological and photocatalytic activity of transparent titania thin-film coatings

the material [ 11 ]. In the literature there are many, often contradictory, reports on the activity of the various structure phases of TiO 2 . Usually, in the case of antibacterial properties the best efficiency exhibit films with mixed phase, where the content of anatase ranges between 70 and 75 %, while for rutile it is ca. 25 to 30 % [ 4 , 9 ]. The dispersion of these values is most probably a consequence of small differences in crystallite sizes, active surface area, number of defects, level of oxygen adsorption and number of hydroxyl groups on the surface [ 9
