Abstract

Copper (Cu) and silver (Ag) known as antimicrobial materials were deposited on activated carbon fibers (ACF) by an electroless plating method. The metal deposited ACF filters were characterized by using SEM, EDX and XRD analyses. To verify the effects of metal deposition on the adsorptive characteristics of ACF filters, the specific surface area and pore structure were determined by BET equation and BJH method, respectively. The antimicrobial activities of metal deposited ACF filters against E. coli, P. fluorescens, B. subtilis and M. luteus were characterized by modified Kirby-Bauer method. By SEM-EDX and XRD analyses, it was confirmed that the electroless plating method was adequate for deposition of Cu and Ag on the surface of ACF filters. BET and BJH analyses showed that the micropore volume of metal plated ACF filters decreased compared to the pristine ACF filter. The inhibition zones, which represent the antimicrobial effects, were formed around the Cu and Ag deposited ACF filters whereas not in the case of pristine ACF.
