Abstract


Investigations on the anti-bacterial activity of ZnO nanoparticles on Staphylococcus aureus were made by using bio-technical method. Light scattering properties of these particles were studied as a function of scattering angle by using a versatile laboratory light scattering setup in order to find the scattering profile of ZnO nanoparticles and also the mode of action of these particles on bacterial property.

Keywords
