Magnetic cores loaded with metallic nanoparticles can be promising nano-carriers for successful drug delivery at infectious sites. We report fabrication, characteristic analysis and in vitro antibacterial performance of nanocomposites comprising of cobalt cores (Co-cores) functionalized with varied concentration of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs). A two-step polyol process synchronized with transmetallation reduction method was used. Co-cores were synthesized by cobalt acetate and decoration of AgNPs was carried out by silver acetate. The density of AgNPs was varied...
