A Study of NanoParticles of Gamma Irradiated Zinc Oxide and Its Anitbacterial effect on Klebsiella pneumonia and Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Swaroop k, Sana Sheikh, Chandrashekar K. R., Somashekarappa H. M


This study carries out the assessment of the antibacterial activity of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles canned with various dosages of the gamma radiations on Klebsiella pneumonia (K pneumonia) and Pseudomonas aeruginosin (P aeruginosin) bacteria. Additionally, there is the synthesis of the ZnO nanoparticles using the combustion technique, and the samples that were synthesized were then irradiated with gamma radiation of various dosages from 0 to 200 kGy. The characteristics of all of the samples in the study were by the use of Powder X-ray Diffractometer (Powder XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR), Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrophotometer (UV-Vis), and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM).
