This study has been designed to boost the inhibition efficiency and stability of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and this objective has been achieved by incorporating silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) generated in-situ by reduction of AgNO3 using natural honey into CMC matrix. Characterization of CMC/AgNPs composite was done using Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, Ultraviolet
