antimicrobial mechanism of natural Silver has not been proven yet. However,
through experimentation and through that analysis of the results of many
application tests the mechanism behavior maybe explained as follows.
strong antibiotic power that kills bacteria such as MRSA within 10 seconds.
and Sterilizing mechanism
Antimicrobial and Sterilizing effects by Silver based on Delta plus
Ion(Agδ+)1): It is estimated that the Silver combines strongly to the radical
of the microorganism; ‘–SH’, ‘-COOH’,‘-OH’ and it destroys the cell wall and
disturbs the metabolism.
general, it takes a few minutes to several hours to kill the microorganism.
However, NANOVERTMkilled MRSA at the rate of more than 99%
within 1 minute at 5ppm concentration. This suggests to us that the Delta
plus Ion (Agδ+) of Silver combined powerfully and immediately to the radical
of microorganism ; ‘-SH’, ‘- COOH’, ‘-OH’, and it destroys cell wall and
disturbs the metabolism.
Antimicrobial and Sterilizing function by activated oxygen: We estimate that,
oxygen converts to activated oxygen (O2+, O2-, O), and shows sterilizing
activation by catalytic activation of colloidal silver.
the Oxygen (cohered oxygen, dissolved oxygen, etc) is converted to activated
oxygen by catalytic activation of ‘Ag delta plus Ion (Agδ+)’, its behavior
becomes antimicrobial. Then, if Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is added to it,
the antimicrobial effects disappear. This is the basis of our understanding
Antimicrobial and Sterilizing effects as Metal: Differently from any other
metal or general Silver, NANOVERTMhas its particle size of 1nm~10nm, and it
can kill the bacteria effectively.
surface-energy of metal-silver is called ‘Delta plus Ion (Agδ+)’ and through
combination with protein such as cell walls and enzymes, and obstruct the
energy-replacement. And also in a point of metallic silver, it may be
explained that silver transfers to inside the bacteria. Especially since the
particle-size ofNANOVERTM isonly1nm to
10nm, when the bacteria intakes these, it then immediately dies. It is
estimated that the bacteria metabolism-disorder is caused by the metallic
surface- strong energy the Delta Plus Ion ‘Agδ+’.
metal is not an ion, but when it is divided into nano-particles, it will be
enlarged in the surface area, and the surface energy to react on certain
materials become more powerful at the same concentration. The surface-energy of
metallic silver is so called ‘Delta plus ion (Agδ+)’.
