Findings from Zhengzhou University Broadens Understanding of Nanoparticles

June 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators publish new report on Nanoparticles. According to news reporting out of Zhengzhou, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "A sandwich-like antibacterial reagent (Ag/HNTs/rGO) was constructed through the direct growth of silver nanoparticles on the surface graphene-based HNTs nanosheets."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Zhengzhou University, "Herein, various nanomaterials were combined by adhesion effect of DOPA after self-polymerization."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Ag/HNTs/rGO possess enhanced antibacterial ability against E. coli and S. aureus compared with individual silver nanoparticles, rGO nanosheets or their nanocomposites."
