Abstract

Bioaerosols are airborne particles of biological origin. There is an increasing need for developing efficient methods for controlling bioaerosols in the buildings due to the health effects of bioaerosols. Airborne silver nanoparticles generated from an atomizer were used as control materials against bioaerosols. E. coli bioaerosols which were popular in the bioaerosol studies were tested in this study. It was demonstrated that airborne silver nanoparticles have the potential for being used as an antimicrobial agent in the indoor air pollution control applications.
