polymeric materials along with nanoparticles are widely used to protect from microbial propagation. In humid environments, enclosed edifice is amongst the foremost propagation substrates aimed at microorganisms. Antimicrobial coatings could help to stop microbial proliferation or, reduce the number of microorganisms growing on inside buildings. This paper deals with inhibition of Escherichia coli bacteria by TiO2 and silver nano-particles doping along with poly acrylate-based copolymers. Coated glass was characterized for FTIR, antimicrobial activity, UV Visible Spectroscopy and water contact angle for hydrophobicity and SEM analysis for surface morphology. The disk diffusion method was used for bacterial inhibition. Results revealed that developed material has good adhesion with glass and shows transparency, hydrophobicity and antibacterial activity. Which shows that coating material can be used for significant antibacterial coatings to protect window glass table ware glass doors etc. further these coatings are transparent, UV radiation protected and hydrophobic in nature which also enhance the self-cleaning effects. In addition, the coating has photocatalytic activity due to the presence of TiO2 and showed momentous antibacterial events after 2,4 and 6 hrs and this efficiency would be increased by improving formulation composition.
