The growing problem of multi-drug resistant bacteria reduces the efficacy of antibacterial agents requiring alternative solutions to be developed. Some metal ions are known to provide antimicrobial effects and have previously been shown to be effective on open wounds and injured skin where uncontrolled micro-organism growth can delay the normal process of wound healing. An effective antibacterial agent is required to improve the wound healing process in order to avoid open wound complications for patients.
