Stachybotrys chartarum is very common in buildings and homes and will grow anywhere indoors where there is moisture. Therefore, in the current study it was isolated from walls with excessive moisture covered with susceptible paint. As an alternative to synthetic fungicides, the use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) as antifungal agents has become more widespread. Ag-NPs exhibited a potent antifungal activity against S. chartarum, similar to the antifungal activity of chemical fungicide…
