- ... Due to the increasing occurrence and spread of antibiotic resistance pathogenic microorganisms, the development of antimicrobial materials has emerged as a strategy to control the bacterial activity and transmission. In this study, poly(vinyl alcohol)/silver nanoparticles-graphene oxide (PVA/AgNPs-GO) nanocomposites were synthesized by a one-step process with l-ascorbic acid as environmentally fri ...
