Pages: 732 - 735

Keywords: silver, antimicrobial, smart devices

Abstract:
A novel approach to the controlled release of silver nanoparticles from a solid state repository within microdevice/micro fluidic architectures is presented. The dynamics of their formation, mechanism and influence on particle formation and release characteristics is assessed.
