The antibactedal and antifungal IlrOpel"ties of zinc oxide films llrellared by anodizing of zinc specimens and by oxidation of zinc electroplated coatings arc discussed in this pallel", The antifungal eft"icacy of the films were tested against common food and leathel" sllOilage fungi vi~~, Aspergillus llavus, ASlleq~illus nigel", Aspel"gillus nidulans, Aspergillus telTeus, Penicillium fl'equentans, Penicillium .-ubrum, Penicillium lleqmmgenum, Paecilomyces varioti and the human fungal Ilathogen, Candida albicans. The bactel'ia tested include Staphylococcus llUl"eUS, Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas aemginosa, Sacchanlmyces cerevisiae and Escherichia coli. The yeast, Sacchammyces cerevisiae was also included in the test. The effect of light on the antibactelial and antifungal propeliies m"e discussed. In presence of light, the hiocidal Ilotential is enhanced.
