    Summary
    Biomaterial-related infections remain a significant challenge in medicine. Antimicrobial materials on the basis of Ag nanoparticles represent a promising solution for this issue. Therefore several Ag-containing nanocontainers and nanorattles have been synthesized and characterized that exhibit remarkable control over the release of Ag+ as antimicrobial active species. Their biological evaluation against prokaryotic as well as eukaryotic cells reveals that they fulfill the prerequisites for applications as antimicrobial implant coatings.
