Wound healing is affected by bacterial infection and related inflammation, cell proliferation and differentiation, and tissue remodeling. Current antibiotics therapy cannot promote wound healing and kill bacteria at the same time. Herein, nanosheets of Ag/g-C3N4 are prepared to assist wound healing and kill bacteria simultaneously. The prepared composite was characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) to reveal the formation of composite metal, and carbon nitride. The antibacterial property of as-prepared composite was studied by destruction of Gram-negative Escherichia coli bacteria using broth dilution method. Ag/g-C3N4 composite exhibited better antibacterial activity compared to g-C3N4 nanoparticles and had a lower MIC than g-C3N4.
