Description

The antibacterial effects of gold and silver naked nanoparticles on E. coli and S. aureus will be assayed through administration of a drug and assessed through a colony count. The antibacterial effects of rhodanine and boronic acid in conjunction with the nanoparticles will also be attempted through this process. The relative effective antibacterial power will also be examined through the administration of multiple porous disks of varying drug concentration to the colony growth disc. Research is currently underway; clearer results anticipated as more work is done.
