This chapter describes the results of testing the antimicrobial properties of Ag and Cu nanoparticle solutions and nanoparticle-modified materials. Both Ag and Cu nanoparticles were obtained by the biochemical synthesis in reverse micelles Ag nanoparticles were used as a standard micellar solution and aqueous solutions prepared by the transfer from this micellar solution; here the nanoparticles were 9–10 ± 4 nm in size. Cu nanoparticles were used as a micellar solution, and the mean particle size was no more than 15 nm. Testing of the antimicrobial properties of nanoparticles was carried out in aqueous medium (silver), in varnish-paint materials (silver and copper) and on solid materials and polymer films modified with silver nanoparticles.
