Simple and green fabrication of AgCl/Ag-cellulose paper with antibacterial and photocatalytic activity

Simple and green fabrication of AgCl/Ag-cellulose paper with antibacterial and photocatalytic activity
A green in situ technique to prepare a kind of multifunctional hybrid paper, AgCl/Ag particles hybrid cellulose-paper (AgCl/Ag-paper), was established. The AgCl/Ag-paper was obtained from a facile ultrasound agitation procedure. Scanning electron microscope observation showed that AgCl/Ag particles were highly dispersed outside surface and inside of the paper matrix. The resultant AgCl/Ag-paper demonstrated satisfactory antibacterial activity and biocompatibility. Moreover, AgCl/Ag-paper showed good photocatalytic activity and stability for decomposing organic pollutants (methyl blue) under the direct sunlight. Overall, this work provided a simple and green approach for the preparation of a new paper-based material with effectively antibacterial, photocatalytic activity, and biocompatibility for various applications and also showed the potential of scale-up production.
