- ... In this work, we report on the antibacterial properties of silicon nanowires (SiNWs) generated by via metal-assisted chemical etching (MACE) against Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) bacteria strains. The results demonstrate that the antibacterial action can be attributed to the layer of silver (Ag) dendrites found on the surface of the SiNWs as a natural by-product ...
