Antimicrobial fabrics are functionally active materials that can kill microorganisms or inhibit their growth. While developing antimicrobial properties on textiles, besides being efficient against microorganisms, safety for the consumer and to the environment is crucial. The article discusses the use of the antimicrobial compound, silver nanoparticles, in the preparation of fiber with the mentioned property. The given article is about determining the optimal conditions for extracting fiber from Yucca (Yucca Gloriosa L.), developing antibacterial properties for it and defining biological activity. A chemical rating approach was selected to extract fiber from yucca and the optimal conditions for obtaining strong fiber was determined. To give antimicrobial properties to it silver nanoparticles were chosen. The eco-friendly method of biosynthesis using Yucca extract was used to obtain silver nanoparticles. To impregnate nanoparticles into the fiber, the In situ approach was chosen. Antibacterial properties of obtained fiber were proved using agar diffusion method against various pathogenic bacteria.
