In this work, we synthesize and characterize a material made from silver nanoparticles stabilized thanks to a biocompatible polymer. The first step of the study concerns the synthesis of silver nanoparticles colloidal suspension stabilized by polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and his characterization by different techniques (TEM, DLS) leading to the production of nanoparticles of different sizes and shapes. Following this characterization, the second step is the development of a structured material in fibers and/or balls by electrospinning from the Ag@PVP solution. This material was characterized by SEM and EDS demonstrating the formation of Ag@PVP fibers and / or beads.
