Developing new antimicrobial agents from current antibiotics and non-antibiotics could have a major benefit in allowing reuse of existing antibiotics. The modification of medicine’s molecular structures through laser radiation represents a new approach in chemistry, biology, and pharmacology. The generated photoproducts and their concentrations can be controlled through the irradiation process, by choosing the proper laser wavelength, time and dose of irradiation.
