Abstract

A novel and universal procedure has been developed for producing nanosized stable silver particles on cotton fabrics in a simple and cost-effective manner with complete control of the silver loading level on the fabrics; the antibacterial effect of Ag-nanocoated fabrics on various bacteria was evaluated by growth inhibition; for biomedical applications, skin irritation tests on guinea pigs were performed and no side effects were observed.
