The article reviews the role of nano silver particles in improving the antibacterial properties of textile materials. Efforts have been directed at the extracellular synthesis of highly stable silver nano particles for the development of nanosafe textile.
Nanosilver particles (NSPs), are among the most attractive nanomaterials, and have been widely used in a range of biomedical applications, including diagnosis, treatment, drug delivery, medical device coating, and for personal health care.
Medical textiles with silver/nanosilver and their potential application for the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections
Conductive, antibacterial, and electromagnetic shielding silver‐plated cotton fabrics activated by dopamine.
These features makes this silver‐plated cotton fabrics a promising candidate as multifunctional textiles with reduction percent of bacteria over 99.99%
