Novel biocompatible and antimicrobial composites based on poly(lactic acid) (PLA), hydrolyzed collagen (HC) and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were prepared by melt processing. Tributyl o-acetyl citrate (ATBC) was used as plasticizer, for improving the processability of PLA. The influence of HC and AgNPs on the PLA bionanocomposites was investigated in terms of biocompatibility, antifungal activity and water contact angle measurements. Surface morphology by SEM and the identification of AgNPs by… CONTINUE READING
