Abstract

In this study nano particles of sodium benzoate has been obtained by sol-gel methods and was characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy, X-ray powder and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In addition its effect on food spoilage bacteria, Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus, has been investigated. Results showed that nano sodium benzoate have a more antibacterial effect against all bacterial varieties in comparison with bulk sodium benzoate.

Keywords: Nano sodium benzoate, antimicrobial, food industry
