The [Ag.sup.+] release behavior of different concentrations of nAgDT was shown in Figure 4.
Cytocompatibility of nAgDT. In order to evaluate the cytotoxicity of nanosilver modified diatomite, NIH3T3 fibroblasts and MC3T3-E1 osteoblasts were cultured in the extracts of different concentrations of samples, respectively.
Antibacterial Properties of nAgDT. To evaluate the antibacterial properties of the nAgDT, E.
The nAgDT has been developed through the reaction of Tollens' reagent, by which silver particles were uniformly deposited on the surface of diatomite.
