Controlled Structure-Dependent Synthesis of Polymer/Nanosilver Composites for Highly Efficient Antibacterial Coatings
Silver containing polymer composites were successfully synthesized via in-situ reduction approach. Different functional polymers with hydroxyl, amide and amine functionalities have been used as matrices. An influence of polymer structure and functionality on a size and shape of silver nanoparticles was established via FTIR/TEM complex analysis. The materials based on these composites could be effectively applied as advanced antibacterials.
