Interaction of Silver Nanoparticles and Chitin Powder with Different Sizes and Surface Structures: The Correlation with Antimicrobial Activities

Figure 6

Chitins A, B, C, G-C, D, and G-D/Ag NP composites were evaluated for their antifungal activity against A. niger by incubating fungal spores on PDA with composites consisting of various amounts of Ag NPs in 5 mg/mL suspensions of each chitin. The composites exhibited a strong Ag NP concentration-dependent antifungal activity. Data are the mean ± standard deviation; . Asterisks () denote statistically significant differences ( ) as determined using a two-sample t-test.
