Fabrication of novel biofibers by coating silk fibroin with chitosan impregnated with silver nanoparticles.


Nanoparticle based agents often applied as coatings on biomaterials have shown promise in delivering the improved sterility against variety of microbes. In the present study, silk fibers (SF) were coated with chitosan impregnated with silver nanoparticles (Ag-C-SF). These Ag-C-SF fibers were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with energy… (More)
