Abstract: Sensitivity to nanoparticles has been found to vary according to microbial activity. Agar and disc diffusion studies with P aeruginosa and S aureus showed better performance of zinc oxide nanoparticles compared with lead nitrate nanoparticles. S aureus describes the maximum concentration of nanoparticles compared to other pathogens and then affected by lead nitrate nanoparticles. Good correlation was observed by using MIC measurement in liquid water. MIC of zinc oxide nanoparticles against P. aeruginosa and S. aureus was found to be 5.1μg/ml, 2.5μg / ml, significantly lower than that compared to Pb (NO3)2 nanoparticles 6.5μg/ml, 12.5μg/ml, respectively. It can be concluded that ZnO nanoparticles increase a person's immune system resistance against microorganisms compared to other nanoparticles. The current research opens up new avenues for the biological production of Nano-materials and ZnO NPs with the potential to act as antimicrobials and control microbial pathogens such as those that appear tested by multidrug-resistant pathogens.
