SilverAg Nanoparticle /Nanopowder CAS Number : 7440-22-4
Anti-odor and perspiration Anti-bacterial Affordable Durable Silver is an effective antimicrobial agent and in the form of nanoparticles, it provides terrific driving force for diffusion, which allows chemical reactions to occur at a high rate.
The growth of microorganisms on textiles inflicts a range of unwanted effects both on textiles and the persons who wear them. So controlling and killing of microorganism in wet and warm environments in textiles is important. Among the various antimicrobial agents used for producing antimicrobial textiles, silver has a unique property such as high thermal stability, low volatility and long-term activity. Silver nanoparticles are potent and broad-spectrum antibacterial agents with activity against diverse species within both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. They show a good antibacterial property with their large surface area to volume ratio, which provides a better contact with the microorganism.
