A series of copper/palladium bimetallic nanostructures based nanofluids has been prepared with the aim of investigating antimicrobial activity. Synthesized nanofluids were characterized by UV-visible spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and acoustic spectroscopy to determine their optical absorbance, structure, surface morphology and particle size distribution, respectively. Prepared nanofluids were tested for their antimicrobial activity using the agar disc diffusion method and their minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values were calculated by micro-dilution method. Results of antimicrobial activity revealed that prepared nanofluids possessed a good antibacterial activity against microbial species. In summary, the application of these bimetallic nanofluids as antimicrobial agent will be very valuable for biomedical and industrial applications
