Adsorption ability and antibacterial activity could be created in a single electrospun nanofiber mat. Activated carbon/silver-doped polyurethane electrospun nanofiber mats have been introduced as a novel multifunction nanostructural material. Production of the introduced mat could be achieved by electrospinning of a colloidal solution from polyurethane containing activated carbon nanoparticles and silver nitrate. The high electric field and the presence of N,N-dimethylformamide, which is used as a solvent, led to reduced silver precursor in the silver nanoparticles. The introduced mat revealed good adsorption ability toward methylene blue dye. The presence of silver nanoparticles resulted in good antibacterial activity for the introduced mat since a piece of the mat could completely eliminate Escherichia coli bacteria. Overall, according to the utilized physiochemical characterizations, the introduced mat can be used as a mask or filter media.
