Antimicrobial Activity of Ginger Silver Nano-composite on Cat-Gut Suture Material an In-Vitro Study
In this present study, silver nanoparticles were synthesized using dried ginger extract and intervened with chitosan to result in the silver nano-composite. The biosynthesized nano-composite was coated on catgut suture material to test its anti periimplantitis effect. The synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized using UV-Visible spectrophotometry and showed peak absorption at 440 nm, and the composite showed at 380 nm. The TEM image clearly showed the uniformly dispersed spherical shaped silver nano-composite with the size of about 14-20 nm. The coated suture material was tested for its antiperi implantitis effect, and it showed a potent effect against S. mutans and E. feacalis.
