Abstract

This study outlines a prompt method for the production of selenium oxide nanoparticles (SeO2-NPs) utilizing selenium disulfide (SeS2) and ethanol. The SeO2-NPs were subjected to characterization utilizing X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic force microscopy (AFM), ultraviolet spectroscopy, and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy techniques. The results indicate the existence of SeO2-NPs, which exhibit an average size of about <20 nm. The XRD pattern obtained from the SeO2-NPs indicates the presence of a hexagonal crystal lattice. The objective of this article was to investigate the characteristics of SeO2-NPs that possess antibacterial and antifungal properties. The efficacy of NPs as an antibacterial and antifungal agent has been demonstrated through examinations conducted on Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Klebsiella, Escherichia coli, and Candida.
