Abstract [en]

In this study three types of clay/silicon nanocomposites were prepared. Clay was modified with two different antimicrobial agents (p-aminobenzoic acid and partially aminated poly(vinylbenzyl chloride) and used for preparation of the nanocomposites, which aimed to show antimicrobial properties and also easy dispersion of the clay into the polymeric matrix. Reference nanocomposites were made through the modification of the clay with a siloxane surfactant to make an easy dispersion of the clay into the silicone rubber. Nanocomposites were studied for resistancy against biological attack according to the international standard tests. Growth test results indicated that some of the nanocomposites can inhibit biological growth more than pristine nanocomposites. Modified clay was studied with x-ray diffraction technique. Materials were also studied with scanning electron microscopy before and after biological growth to analyse the biofilm formation on the surface.
