Abstract : Infectious diseases are considered as a significant threat to human health as well as environment. Due to the increasing microbial diseases, researchers are trying to find out new materials with superior antimicrobial properties. Insertion of various nanofillers into rubber matrices will result in the production of advanced rubber nanocomposites with improved mechanical, electrical, thermal and barrier properties. However, improvement in antimicrobial properties of rubber nanocomposites is still remaining as an unexplored area. But the existing studies show that, the addition of antimicrobial nanofillers can introduce antimicrobial properties into the final rubber nanocomposites and thus can be used in various biomedical applications. Thus the present review tries to bring together all the available antimicrobial works in the area of rubber nanocompositses.
