9783642244278: Nano-Antimicrobials: Progress and Prospects

There is a high demand for  antimicrobials for the treatment of new and emerging microbial diseases. In particular, microbes developing multidrug resistance have created a pressing need to search for a new generation of antimicrobial agents, which are effective, safe and can be used for the cure of multidrug-resistant microbial infections. Nano-antimicrobials offer effective solutions for these challenges; the details of these new technologies are presented here.

The book includes  chapters by an international team of experts. Chemical, physical, electrochemical, photochemical and mechanical methods of synthesis are covered. Moreover,  biological synthesis using microbes, an option that  is both eco-friendly and economically viable, is presented. The antimicrobial potential of different nanoparticles is also covered, bioactivity mechanisms are elaborated on, and several applications are reviewed in separate sections. Lastly, the toxicology of nano-antimicrobials is briefly assessed.

Review:

From the reviews:

“This is an excellent book and gives a comprehensive overview of the subject of nano-antimicrobials. ... There are some excellent figures which help explain some of the techniques used and provide excellent evidence of their activity. ... The book will have interest across a wide range of fields of microbiology and material science and is highly relevant for microbiologists and material scientists working in interdisciplinary research groups.” (Valerie Edwards-Jones, Microbiology Today, November, 2012)
