APPLICATION OF SILVER NANOPARTICLES IN DISINFECTION: A REVIEW
The use of multiple disinfectants has been used to counteract numerous methods to decrease infections. The paradigm advances in metallic crystals have resulted in excellent and impressive properties from bulky to micro-size to nano-scale; which have been the outstanding interests in a broader variety of applications. In particular, because of their distinctive optical, chemical, electrical and catalytic properties which can be adjusted with surface design, scale, shapes, etc., AgNPs have much interest and therefore these crystals have been used in various fields such as catalysis, sensors, electronic components, health industry antimicrobial agents, etc. Among them, because of the realistic applications in our everyday life, AgNPs-based disinfectants have paid attention. The AgNPs have therefore been used in various industries, such as air/water filters dependent on platinum, textiles, animal husbandry, biomedical and food packaging, etc. AgNPs as a disinfectant in multiple industries has been used in depth in this study.
