We report here for the first time a one-pot simultaneous synthesis and antibacterial properties of Ag-TiO 2 nanocomposites via ethylene glycol medium. The salient features of this method include simple operation, large scale production and one medium (solvent) to produce two different nanoparticles. Clusters of Ag and TiO 2 nanoparticles with an average size of 20 - 30 nm and narrow size distribution are formed after annealing at 400 and 500 oC. The annealed Ag-TiO 2 nanoparticles show excellent antibacterial properties under visible-light irradiation.
