Scholarcy highlights

  • Polymeric nanocomposite films of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) derivative, with ester side groups containing well-dispersed Ag nanoparticles, were prepared, using a very simple coating and reduction process
  • The nanocomposite films were stable in water because the matrix polymer, PHEMA derivative with ester side groups is relatively hydrophobic, while Ag nanoparticles are well dispersed in the polymer matrix, due to the oxygen-rich ester side groups of the polymer
  • Friend of Industry Technology Information Testing & Research Institute, Antibacterial of polymeric materials
