These metal/metal oxide composites have demonstrated in vitro to be very potent cascades of reactive oxygen species, lethal on contact to E. coli using the JIS Z 2801/ISO 22196 method. The ROS density was demonstrated by chemiluminescence test:
ROS concentration of ZnO/Zn is much higher than the rest.This suggests that ROS is the main reason that kills bacteria(Zn,ZnO/glass and Zno/Ti have no bactericidal property(log reduction <1) as evaluated using JIS method.
These Zn/ZnO high ROS compounds are low in cost and easy to scale up production.It is very stable and have long-term activity, not size dependent and can be active in size ranging from nano to micro metre.This product is clean and safe and ZnO is classified as a skin protectant by FDA.
We have branded our Zn/ZnO product Rozinco
