New high-efficiency antibacterial and non-resistance nanosilver comes out.

2020-03-09
He Tao, a professor at the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Hefei University of Technology, and Zha Zhengbao, a professor at the School of Food and Biological Engineering, published the latest research and development results on the latest high-efficiency antibacterial and non-resistant nanosilver in the journal of Advanced Functional Materials.

To achieve highly effective antibacterial and drug resistance, , researchers used weak acid-responsive orthoester polymers as stabilizers, and reduced in-situ reduction of silver nitrate to prepare silver nanoclusters with uniform size. They found that the silver nanoclusters quickly dissociate into hydrophobic silver nanoparticles when exposed to the acidic microenvironment of bacteria, and instantly release a large number of silver ions to achieve quick-acting sterilization. Subsequently, the silver nanoparticles are reassembled near the bacteria, targeted to aggregate on the surface of the bacteria, and long-term release of silver ions to achieve sustained sterilization. Compared with non-responsive ordinary silver nano, the weak acid response recombination effect of silver nanoclusters significantly improves the targeted antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli, while reducing the amount of silver used.

Based on previous work, the research team used weak acid-responsive orthoester polymers as stabilizers to reduce silver nitrate in situ to prepare silver nanoclusters (AgNCs) of uniform size. When exposed to the acidic microenvironment of bacteria, this type of silver nanoclusters will dissociate quickly into hydrophobic silver nanoparticles, and instantly release a large amount of Ag + ions to achieve rapid sterilization. Subsequently, the silver nanoparticles are reassembled near the bacteria, targeted to aggregate on the surface of the bacteria, and long-term release of silver ions to achieve sustained sterilization. The weak acid response recombination effect of silver nanoclusters significantly improves the targeted antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and E. coli compared with non-responsive ordinary silver nano, Reduced use of silver. The results show that the minimum bacteriostatic concentration and the minimum bactericidal concentration for MRSA are as low as 4 μg mL-1 and 32 μg mL-1; the minimum bacteriostatic level and the minimum bactericidal concentration for E. coli are as little as 8 μg mL-1 and 32 μg mL-1 (Figure 1). The silver nanocluster aqueous dispersion can be sprayed on the surface of skin wounds and has a significant effect on wound healing with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection (Figure 2). This work was funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Anhui University Collaborative Innovation Fund, and the necessary scientific research business fees of the central universities.
