Title: Gold-Oxoborate Nanocomposites and Their Biomedical Applications
Abstract: A novel inorganic nanocomposite material, called BOA, Which has the form small building blocks composed of gold nanoparticles embedded in a matrix) is presented. It is demonstrated that cotton wool with the BOA nanocomposite,displays strong antibacterial toward both Gram-positive and -negative bacteria strains. the modified cotton does not release any toxic subtances, the bacteria are killed upon contact with fibers coated with the Toxicity tests show that the nanocomposite-in spite of its properties-is harmless for mammalian cells. The presented of surface modification utilizes mild, environmentally friendly conditions. Thus, it offers a facile approach to obtain durable nontoxic antiseptic coatings for biomedical applications.
