Abstract

The current study tested the antibacterial activity of layered double hydroxide (LDH), LDH-Doxycycline nanohybrid, Cobalt ferrite nanoparticles (NPs) and Cobalt ferrite-Chitosan nanohybrid against Gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli. In addition, the study investigated the Cobalt ferrite NPs and Cobalt ferrite-Chitosan nanohybrids against Gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. The nanoparticles and nanohybrids were synthesized by a chemical method and characterized by high resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and Fourier transformation Infra-red Spectroscopy (FTIR). Multi-point Brunauer-Emmet-Teller (BET) method determined the specific surface area while Barrett-Joyner-Halenda for (BJH) figured the corresponding specific pore volume and pore size and Zetasizer ranked the particle size distribution. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and the minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) measurements besides agar well diffusion method showed the antimicrobial activity of the nanoparticles. The results revealed no antibacterial activity of the LDH and Cobalt ferrite NPs alone. Meanwhile, the Cobalt ferrite-Chitosan nanohybrid and LDH-Doxycycline showed a high activity antibacterial effect.
