Abstract

We have reported here a simple procedure for the preparation of metal, semi-conducting nanoparticle composite films by using naturally occurring biopolymer, agarose, as the matrix. Ag and Cu nanoparticles composite films show high antibacterial activity against E. coli bacteria. These agarose-metal-nanoparticle films can be easily converted into catalytic metal–carbon composites by carbonization.
