Antifungal activity of ZnO, SiO2, Au and Ag acrylic nanocomposites. Scientific and Technical Journal of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, 2016, vol. 16, no. 6, pp. 1133–1136. doi: 10.17586/2226-1494-2016-16-6-1133-1136


The paper describes our results on antifungal effect of nanocomposite material. The nanocomposite is based on acrylates and functional nanoparticles composition. The study of material activity was carried out by the agar diffusion method. Candida albicans (C. albicans) strain of fungi was used as a test object. The antifungal effect of polymer matrix is shown. Zinc oxide nanoparticles increase the antifungal effect. 

Keywords: nanocomposite, bio polymer, antifungal effect, nanoparticles, acrylate
