Antibacterial agents are of relevance to a number of industrial sectors including medical, healthcare, food and environment. Organic antibacterial agents kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria by interrupting the synthesis of protein, lipid, nucleic acids or the integrity of the bacterial membrane. Heavy metals and metal oxides have a long application history in inhibiting the growth of bacteria.
