| Biofilm growth on catheter surface is a challenge for various biomedical applications. Microbial colonization on catheter's surface leads to many infections. Silicone polymer is a routine material for catheter fabrication. In the present work, silver nanoparticles (NPs) and photosensitive non-toxic dye toluidiune blue (TB) embedded silicon polymer is synthesised by swell encapsulation method and characterised by UV spectroscopy. The embedded polymer showed high bactericidal activity againstdoi:10.14737/journal.aavs/2015/3.1s.10.15 fatcat:jf6no4awkjeb3gmkmx5kv2umni
