Abstract

This work was devoted to synthesizing α-ɣ Al2O3 nanocomposite by the electrolysis method. A plate of aluminum was used as the anode, while the graphite rod was used as the counter electrode (cathode). The structure and morphology were investigated and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results indicated the average size of α-ɣ Al2O3 nanocomposite was smaller than 10 nm. The value of inhibition zone indicated the nanocomposite’s effect on different bacteria. The
