Abstract

The increased interest has grown towards polymer nanocomposite materials exhibiting unique properties. Currently, the importance of antifungal materials is growing in various fields. Since many years the silver compounds are known as disinfectants with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. Over 2,000 years ago silver compounds were recognized for their antibacterial activity. In comparison with other antibacterial agents, silver nanoparticles are obtained in simple process with high efficiency and sustainability.
