Abstract:Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are metal structures at the nanoscale. AgNPs have
exhibited antimicrobial activities against fungi and bacteria; however synthesis of
AgNPs can generate toxic waste during the reaction process. Accordingly, new routes
using non-toxic compounds have been researched. The proposal of the present study was
to synthesize AgNPs using ribose as a reducing agent and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)
as a stabilizer. The antifungal activity of these particles against C.
albicans and C. tropicali… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
