We have developed a new Safer-by-Design concept for nanomaterials which consists of an assembly of silver nanoparticles linked together by a bio-inspired molecule. This nanomaterial with biocidal properties releases Ag(I) ions in a slow and controlled manner, unlike the AgNPs currently in use, which undergo uncontrolled processes of transformation and product release.
