Keywords: silver carbon nanotubes (AgCNT), pseudomonas aeruginosa

Summary:

Silver carbon nanotubes AgCNT inhibited the growth of P. aeruginosa at the lowest concentration of 60 µg/ml for at least 12 hr. Further studies of structural and morphological changes would further elucidate the mechanism of Ag-CNT inhibition of P. aeruginosa
