Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


High surface area hydroxyapatites have been explored as biocompatible supports for antibacterial applications. Porosimetry, XRD, XPS and XAS reveal that Ag-doped mesoporous hydroxyapatite promotes the genesis of potent Ag3PO4 nanoparticles, effective against Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
