Cuprous Oxide - Antimicrobial
There is a lot of research currently being undertaken trying to develop antimicrobial coatings to protect against various bacteria like E Coli and MRSA. It is a well know fact that most of these harmful bacteria cannot survive on copper surfaces and so encapulating copper in surface treatments is one of the ways to try and combat this problem.
Cuprous Oxide (Cu2O) or Copper (I) Oxide is well known for its antimicrobial properties, and research is always ongoing. Cuprous Oxide has anti-bacterial properties and research is ongoing to develop surface treatments to combat the spread of bacteria.
