Conjugation of nanoparticles with organic compounds are performed to enhance the activity and to increase their stability. This property would aid in developing different life saving biomedical products. Based on this objective, silver nanoparticle – poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) conjugate was developed with the aim of investigating its wound healing ability and biocompatibility in the present study. Chemical characterization of developed silver nanoparticles was also studied using FESEM and UV spectroscopic analysis.
