Abstract

This study was conducted to identify the characteristics of α-Fe2O3/TiO2 nanohybrid particles as antifungal agents. The nanohybrid synthesis was carried out by using the local iron sand-based coprecipitation method. Some characterization was carried out to determine the structure, morphology, and functional groups of materials as a preliminary study. The structure review shows that four phases were formed in the material, namely, the hematite, anatase, rutile, and brookite phases with particle sizes of 15.20 to 36.12 nm. The morphology of α-Fe2O3/TiO2 nanohybrid particles shows agglomeration with an average particle size distribution of about 26?nm. The α-Fe2O3/TiO2 nanohybrid particle of functional group succeeded in showing the presence of two of its precursors, namely, α-Fe2O3 and TiO2. Antifungal application reviews were carried out by using agar diffusion methods on C. albicans mushrooms. Lastly, Inhibition zone diameters obtained for each sample were 8.5 and 16.4?nm.
