In Vitro Antimicrobial Activity of Polyacrylamide Doped Magnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles

Munmun Mukherje
Abstract—This paper addresses the antimicrobial activity of cationic polymer doped iron oxide nanoparticles at in vitro level. Magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles were prepared in simple procedure and then doped with polyacrylamide (PAM). The antimicrobial activity of cationic polymer doped iron oxide nanoparticles was evaluated. The prepared polyacrylamide doped magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles exhibited antimicrobial activity against Escherichia coli. The study suggests that cationic polymer doped magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles have excellent bactericidal property and are useful in producing microbes free water.

Index Terms—Antimicrobial, cationic polymer, iron oxide nanoparticles, polyacrylamide.
