The aim of the present study is to establish the synthesis of the antibacterial prosthetic liner using with artificial limb mediated zinc oxide nanoparticles and the evaluation of their mechanical properties and antibacterial activity. So we used ZnO (modified and unmodified) nanoparticles to prepare silicone rubber nanocomposites using in the production of the prosthetic liner that being antibacterial and prevent any infection may occur. With the addition of (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 pphr (part per hundred rubber)) of ZnO (unmodified and modified) nanoparticles it was noted that as, the concentration of both types of ZnO nanoparticles increase, tensile strength, tear resistance, elongation, modulus, hardness, compression, and specific gravity decrease. Composites contain modified ZnO nanoparticles still has higher mechanical properties than that contains unmodified ZnO nanoparticles the work suggested to use little amount of nanoparticles to get better mechanical and antibacterial properties because the propagation of nanoparticles near the surface of the nanocomposites prepared.
