Cytotoxic and antimicrobial effect of biosynthesized SnO2 nanoparticles using Pruni spinosae flos extract

Renata Dobrucka , Jolanta Długaszewska , Mariusz Kaczmarek


The successfully synthesized SnO2 nanoparticles were studied with the use of the Ultraviolet-Visible (UV-VIS), Fourier Transform-Infrared (FT-IR), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and EDS analyzer, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) measurements. The applied methods confirm the presence of spherical 9 nm SnO2 nanoparticles. The synthetized SnO2 nanoparticles were biocidal to the tested bacteria and fungi. All tested fungi (yeast, molds, dermatophytes) were more sensitive to SnO2 nanoparticles than bacterial strains used in this study but the differences were not statistically significant (p > 0.05)
