Studies on the antimicrobial properties of colloidal silver nanoparticles stabilized by bovine serum albumin.

Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. 2012 May 29;101C:14-18

Authors: Mathew TV, Kuriakose S


Colloidal silver nanoparticles were synthesised using sol-gel method and these nanoparticles were stabilised by encapsulated into the scaffolds of bovine serum albumin. Silver nanoparticles and encapsulated products were characterised by FTIR, NMR, XRD, TG, SEM and TEM analyses. Silver nanoparticle encapsulated bovine serum albumin showed highly potent antibacterial activity towards the bacterial strains such as Staphylococcus aureus, Serratia marcescens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
