New Findings Reported from CSIR Describe Advances in Materials Science (Silver nano particle incorporated Ti metal prepared by chemical treatment for antibacterial and corrosion resistance study)
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from CSIR, "Raman result confirmed these networks to be hydrated Ti and sodium hydrogen titanate respectively. Therefore, formed nano network structures were successfully incorporated with silver nano particles of 5-10 nm in size by the subsequent AgNO3 solution. Electrochemical studies showed high corrosion resistance of Ag incorporated Ti metal compared to H2O2 or NaOH treated Ti metals. Antibacterial study of Ti metal subjected to both H2O2-AgNO3 and NaOH-AgNO3 showed zone of inhibition in Staphylococcus aureus compared to only NaOH or H2O2 or untreated specimens."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Steady release of silver ions from thus treated Ti metals into simulated body fluid as measured by AAS coupled with good corrosion resistance property suggests this method to be useful in various biomedical implants."
