Antimicrobial and Photoantimicrobial Activities of Chitosan/CNPPV Nanocomposites
International Journal of Molecular Sciences
Multidrug-resistant bacteria represent a global health and economic burden that urgently calls for new technologies to combat bacterial antimicrobial resistance. Here, we developed novel nanocomposites (NCPs) based on chitosan that display different degrees of acetylation (DAs), and conjugated polymer cyano-substituted poly(p-phenylene vinylene) (CNPPV) as an alternative approach to inactivate Gram-negative (E. coli) and Gram-positive (S. aureus) bacteria. Chitosan's structure was confirmeddoi:10.3390/ijms232012519 fatcat:zois7l2zhfcwfeonuf5chnuwba
