  • Abstract

    Multi-drug resistant (MDR) clinical isolates were used to test the bactericidal efficacy of the newly synthesized porous chitosan/silvernanocomposite film. The synthesized composite was characterized by using UVeVis, FTIR, XRD and HRSEM analysis. The SEM images illustrate the presence of embedded silver nanoparticles (20e50 nm) throughout the films. Moreover, the presence of a small quantity of metal nanoparticles in the composite was enough to significantly enhance inactivation of MDR pathogens as compared with unaltered chitosan.
