Modification of Zinc Selenium nanoparticles with fish oil and their effect on bacteria

The aim of this study was develop suitable nanomaterial modified by fish oil using microwave-assisted synthesis. Dietary omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids can influence an inflammatory process, as well as they can modulate the inflammatory responses to stress situations. Thus, these fatty acids can be beneficial for wound healing. Also, the NPs are important components for many scientific fields, including nanomedicine and development of new and better wound dressing. This work deals with synthesis of ZnSe NPs with fish oil, and their subsequent in vitro testing on different bacterial strains. The synthesized nanomaterial was characterized by scanning electron microscopy, which showed the spherical NPs covered by fish oil. Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin resistant S. aureus, and Escherichia coli were used for the monitoring of NPs effect on bacteria. Wound care is inevitably important clinical challenge, which definitely requires fast growing.
