Paper Title:
Electrospun Antibacterial Chitosan/Poly (Vinyl Alcohol) Nanofibers Containing Silver Nanoparticles
  Abstract

New chitosan/poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) nanofibers functionalized with silver nanoparticles were electrospun using solutions of PVA blended with silver nanoparticles-chitosan composites. The structure of the electrospun fibers were studied with the aid of scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The results indicated that the electrospun fibers smoothly with 220 to 650 nm diameter, and the silver nanoparticles were successfully embed into the fibers which show high antibacterial activity against E.coli.
