Abstract

Multidrug resistant bacterial infection remains a significant public concern. In this report, photosensitizer Chlorin e6 doped silica was synthesized. This hybrid structure exhibits enhanced photostability and high antibacterial efficiency towards Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA). In summary, this work demonstrates an effective platform to improve the efficiency of antibiotics for better treatment of wound infections.
