In this research, Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) polymeric films containing different concentrations of silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs) and TiO2 were manufactured via extrusion and subsequently characterised. Silver/TiO2 surfaces have advantageous properties such as visible light photocatalysis, biological compatibility, and antimicrobial activity. The synthesis of polymer-Ag NPs and Ag NPS on TiO2 are also summarized because of their industrial and environmental importance[1]. In the present study,the morphological, mechanical, and optical performance of the nanocomposite polymeric films is investigated.

Keywords: Low-density polyethylene, polymeric films, TiO2, silver, SEM, Mechanical and Optical properties.‎
