Abstract

Background: According to the recent studies, the antibacterial activities of silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) were studied on Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus and Gram-negative Escherichia coli. In this study antibacterial effect of silver nanoparticles that used for coating textiles, on E.coli and S.aureus was investigated.Methods: Silver nanoparticles were coated on textile fabric by corona treatment and the antibacterial properties of fabrics were quantitatively evaluated by using a Gram-positive bacterium S. aureus and Gram-negative bacterium E. coli.Results: The textiles coated with silver nanoparticles had favorable antimicrobial effect against both E. coli and S. aureus. The value of antibacterial activity was appropriated with corona power and deposition that was used for absorption of Silver nanoparticle on samples.Conclusions: These results suggest that silver nanoparticles could be used as an effective antibacterial material.
