In this study, water-soluble chitosan salts (chitosan amine sulfopropyl salts) were prepared from chitosan samples with different molecular weights and deacetylation degrees. These soluble-in-water polymer salts allowed us to produce, in an eco-friendly and facile method, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) with better control on size and polydispersity, even at large silver concentrations than their corresponding chitosan sample. Chitosan salt-based materials (films and scaffolds) were analyzed in terms of antibacterial properties against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC23915 or Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853. 3D scaffolds enhanced the effect of the chitosan-AgNPs combination compared to the equivalent films.

Abstract

In this study, water-soluble chitosan salts (chitosan amine sulfopropyl salts) were prepared from chitosan samples with different molecular weights and deacetylation degrees. These soluble-in-water polymer salts allowed us to produce, in an eco-friendly and facile method, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) with better control on size and polydispersity, even at large silver concentrations than their corresponding chitosan sample. Chitosan salt-based materials (films and scaffolds) were analyzed in terms of antibacterial properties against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC23915 or Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853. 3D scaffolds enhanced the effect of the chitosan-AgNPs combination compared to the equivalent films.
