Reduced bacterial attachment on surface modified hydrophobic fabric surface: a possible approach for safety enhanced packaging material

, , , , , ,
In the present study, three surface modified fabrics were investigated for their bacterial attachment properties using Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (gram –ve) and Staphylococcus aureus (gram+ve) bacteria. Our results indicate that surface modified fabric show [...]

Nanoemulsion with tuneable lipid shell dedicated to targeted delivery of small and biomacro- molecules

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Lipid nanocarriers are considered as suitable carriers to formulate lipophilic drugs, transport them and also deliver more specifically at appropriate biological sites. Based on oil-in-water template emulsion, we have been developing nanodroplets as drug or [...]

Amino acids-conjugated gold, silver and their alloy nanoparticles: Role of surface chemistry and metal composition on peroxidase like activity

, , , , , ,
New strategies to fabricate nanomaterials of desired physicochemical properties open up new avenues to use nanomaterials for diverse biological applications. In this context, we demonstrate a green and single step synthesis method to obtain monometallic [...]

Synthesis, characterization and in vitro evaluation of cytotoxicity and antimicrobial activity of chitosan-metal nanocomposites

, , , , , , ,
Engineered multifunctional nanowires as novel biosensing tools for highly sensitive detection and Biosensors as innovative tools for detection of food borne pathogens and environmental virology have been well documented. Advanced applications require appropriate chemical functionalization [...]

Combating Dental Caries Via Restorative Materials Containing Antibacterial and Remineralizing Nanoparticles

, , , , , , , , , , ,
Dental caries is a wide spread public health problem, despite much effort in health promotion. Caries at the margins of restorations has been the main reason for failure. The development of direct-filling dental materials with [...]
