The silver-nanoparticles-clay based antimicrobial LDPE masterbatch was extruder from twin-screw-extruder by melting and mixing method, using AgNPs based antimicrobial agent as the functional material for the first time. The characteristics of PENC (polyethylene-nanocomposite) were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDX), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and ecotoxicity. Then the PENC presented excellent antimicrobial property against Candida albicans (C.albicans) and Aspergillus niger (A.niger).
