Due to the problem of resistance of many infectious agents to the usual treatments, this study addresses the ways of obtaining and using new chitosan-silver nanomaterials as antimicrobial agents. Chitosans of medium (CSM) and high (CSH) molecular weights were used as matrices in the formation of small silver nanoparticles (AgNP) when mixed with AgNO3 under different conditions, such as using the polymer (CS) in acetic acid solutions, as nanoparticles (CS-NP) or in films. The films were prepared by evaporation of the CS-AgNO3 mixtures at different temperatures and in all cases AgNP was formed. When acetic acid solutions of CS were boiled in the presence of AgNO3 CS-NP were formed containing AgNP (Ag@CS-NP). It is evident that the size and form of presentation of CS are not factors that can significantly affect the formation of small AgNP. AgNP inserted in different CS matrices presented significant antimicrobial activity (MIC between 0.6-4 μg/mL) against four Gram-positive and five Gram-negative bacteria, and also against three yeasts. It is interesting to emphasize the highest activities achieved for Ag@CSH-NP against B. cereus (0.6 μg/mL) and Ag@CSM-NP against P. pastoris (0.7 μg/mL). Although the antimicrobial activity was dependent on the strain assayed, the overall tendency observed was that the nanocomposites made with CSH are more effective than those prepared with CSM.
