Abstract

Sol gel methods were used for the study of the antimicrobial activity of Cd-TiO2 Nanocomposite against gram negative and positive bacteria. These Cd-TiO2 Nanocomposites have been characterized by various optical and electro-chemical techniques. They have been exhibited by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, ultraviolet spectroscopy, and infrared spectroscopy. The structures of the various XRD patterns indicate that the product has a rhombohedral structure. The particle size of Cd-TiO2 nanocomposite in 35nm. The SEM images confirm the spherical appearance of the sample. The energy dispersive X-ray spectra have been confirmed as well and then C, O, Ti, Cd, Pt element are present in Cd-TiO2 Nanocomposite. The weight percentage of Cadmium is 5.8%, Ti is 51.03%, C is 5.13% and O is 31.75% in Cd-TiO2 Nanocomposite. BET image shows that the major pore size distribution of Cd-TiO2 nanocomposites is ranged from 2.24 nm. The Cd-TiO2 nanocomposite showed that the antibacterial activity when tested against the pathogens only gram negative bacteria such as Pseodomonous. The zone of minimum inhibition concentration was measured in a range of 20mm in 25μl and 30mm in 100μl.
