—First time in this study, the antibacterial effects of Axinyssa digitata sponge extracts and Axinyssa digitata based cupper hybrid nanoflowers (Cu hNFs) were evaluated.
Herein, hybrid nanoflowers (Cu hNFs) were produced by
combining Axinyssa digitata sponge extract with Cu2+ ions
in Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) (at pH 7.4) at room
temperature for three days using green synthesis method.
The shape and size of hNFs were evaluated using scanning electron microscope (SEM) images. Energy dispersive
X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) mapping was used to determine
the presence of Cu metals and other components. X-ray
diffraction (XRD) is a non-destructive analysis method that
was used to determine of the crystallographic properties
of materials and the phases they contain. Fourier-transform
infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) peaks were used to discuss
the presence of functional groups that played a key role
in the synthesis. The Cu-hNFs had antimicrobial activity
against selected microorganisms. This research is expected
to provide knowledge on hNFs synthesis and antimicrobial
activity application investigations using Axinyssa digitata
rather than biomolecules obtained through costly and time-consuming methods.
