Effective delivery of volatile biocides employing mesoporous silicates for treating biofilms

Abstract:

Nanoparticulate delivery of biocides has the potential to decrease levels of exposure to non- target organisms, and miminise long-term exposure which can promote the development of resistance. Silica nanoparticles are an ideal vehicle since they are inert, biocompatible, biodegradable, and thermally and chemically stable. Encapsulation of biocides within nanoparticulates can improve their stability, longevity and maximize the biocidal potential of hydrophobic volatile compounds. Herein, we ha...
