Abstract

Abstract The solvent effect on the structure of nanocomposite films cast from chitosan solutions with AgNO3 as a precursor of silver nanoparticles was studied for the first time. The size and concentration of silver nanoparticles in the chitosan matrix can be controlled by varying the chitosan-dissolving ability of the solvent with carbonic acid.AbstractThe solvent effect on the structure of nanocomposite films cast from chitosan solutions with AgNO3 as a precursor of silver nanoparticles was studied for the first time.
