Controllable fabrication of multifunctional 1D Ag-based coordination polymer@PVP nanowires

Author affiliations

Abstract

Wire-like coordination polymer architectures, coupled with polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) additive, have been synthesized under mild conditions. The morphology of the final coordination polymer was dependent on the synthetic parameters, such as solvents and the amount of PVP. A possible assembly mechanism for the composite nanowires, based on several characterization methods, has been proposed to interpret the growth process. In addition, the newly synthesized Ag-based polymer particles may act as novel antimicrobial agents and metal-based anticancer drugs in the future owing to their potent antibacterial and in vitro anticancer activities against the four selected cancer lines MCF-7, HeLa, H1299 and A549.
