Silver-containing PHBHV-g-PMAA microfibrous scaffolds with antibacterial activity are successfully engineered according to a sustainable “green chemistry” approach. It relies on a two-step procedure: UV photografting of poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA) in aqueous media from the surface of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHBHV) fibers via a “grafting from” method, followed by the complexation of the in situ photogenerated silver nanoparticles immobilized by carboxyl groups from tethered PMAA chains.
