This study has been designed to boost the inhibition efficiency and stability of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and this objective has been achieved by incorporating silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) generated in situ by reduction of AgNO3 using natural honey into CMC matrix. Characterization of CMC/AgNPs composite was done using transmission electron microscope (TEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis), scanning electron microscope (SEM), and… CONTINUE READING
