Abstract

In the present work, a fixed quantity of carbon sphere (CS) with 2 and 4 wt% of silver (Ag) was effectively integrated into layered zinc hydroxide (LZH) using co-precipitation method. This study aimed to check rhodamine dye degradation using catalysis and evaluate the antibacterial activity of LZH and Ag/CS-LZH with molecular docking analysis. To improve catalytic efficiency, CS and Ag were doped into LZH. Various characterizations of LZH and Ag/CS-LZH were assessed to determine the optical, structural, and morphological features. (4. wt%) Ag/CS-LZH demonstrated high catalytic activity (calculated as 87.28%) in an acidic medium with a significant inhibition zone against Escherichia coli (E. coli). The antimicrobial activity of CS-LZH and Ag/CS-LZH nanostructures against DHFRE. coli and DHPSE. coli was explicated by molecular docking investigations.
