AgNPs-coordinated Glucosamine Grafted Carbon Nanotubes with Enhanced Antibacterial Properties

Abstract

MWCNT-glucosamine-AgNPs composite with a long-term antibacterial property, good dispersity and stability in aqueous solutions was synthesized by a grafting method. Various surface analysis techniques were used to to determine the successful preparaion of MWCNT-glucosamine-AgNPs. The release behavior of Ag was detected by ICP-Q, and the long-term antibacterial effect against S.aureus was characterized by the counting method. It was found that, after modification of glucosamine with MWCNT, the interfacial adsorption of Ag was significantly enhanced.The concentration of Ag ions released in the PBS solution was only 0.0643 ppm after 35 days of immersion. The MWCNT-glucosamine-AgNPs maintained agreat antibacterial property, and the bacteriostatic percentage of S.aureus was maintained at 90% after 35 days. This study demonstrated a high potential of MWCNT-glucosamine-AgNPs as a long-term antibacterial agent to utilize in public health and antibacterial coating field.
