Abstract
Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy strives for creation new photosensitizes providing effective formation of singlet oxygen at irradiation in various spectrum areas. Construction of a new generation of photosensitizes on the basis of nanoparticles, such as TiO2, Ag, Au, SiO2 have great potential. We have showed that different nanoparticles used as photosensitizes lead to different effects during photodynamic action. Interaction of broadband light and Ag-SiO2 nanoparticle film decreased bacterial CFU. Irradiation of the test-cultures, photosensitized by TiO2, stimulates microbial cell division.
