AbstractThis article reports the excellent antimicrobial response of nanoparticulate ZnO against multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs). We demonstrate that the enhanced antimicrobial activity against MDROs depends on the crystalline defects of ZnO. Hence, this work provides insights on the ZnO-microorganism interactions, and we pose combined physico-chemical action mechanisms against resistant bacteria.
