Abstract

In this article, we present a kind of silicon-based antibacterial material made of silver nanoparticle (AgNP)-decorated silicon wafers (AgNP@Si), which is facilely and rapidly (30 min) synthesized via a one-step reaction. Significantly, such a resultant silicon-based antibacterial material features stable and high antibacterial activity, preserving >99% antibacterial efficiency against E. coli during 30 day storage.
