oa South African Medical Journal - Copper-impregnated concrete floors : their value in preventing the spread of athlete's foot

 

Abstract

A sample of copper-containing concrete prepared according to the formula of Young and Talbot was examined for bactericidal, bacteriostatic, fungicidal and fungistatic activity. The results of our experiments have demonstrated that the copper-containing concrete examined is of extremely little value as a fungicide or bactericide or in preventing the spread of foot infections.
