Fabrication Ag-encapsulated nanofibres and bacteria tests. (a) SEM image of nanofibre encapsulated with Ag nanoparticle (Tip-to-collector distance is 30 cm, voltage is 20 kV, and solution density is 7.5 wt%), (b) image of one set of culture test for bacteriostatic loop measurement, (c) averaged measurement of bacterial loop diameter versus Ag concentration (wt/10 mL), (d) a TEM image encapsulated with Ag nanoparticle (Tip-to-collector distance is 30 cm, voltage is 20 kV, and solution density is 7.5 wt %), (e) and (f) energy spectrum using SEM for encapsulated Ag particles, and (g) image of EVOH fibre without Ag particles in the bacteria test.
