Recently, a wide range of  metals has  become accessible. New engineering composites are  being developed every day  depending on  these elements. These newly produced composites have been used  in  the  automotive, marine, aircraft, and spacecraft sectors due  to  their lightness and  outstanding strength. A  spinnable covering that  releases metallic ions  gradually into   a  broth  of   living  creatures  could  be   employed  for   a  variety  of   bioactivities.  Although  iron-based  polymer-metal nanocomposites may   be  a  viable option, nothing is  known about their biological characteristics.  According to  the  present research  work,  this   topic is  mostly concentrated  on  corrosion behavior analysis.  According to  earlier studies, there is  a variation in  iron   metal matrix behavior based on  corrosion behavior. The  fundamental challenge in  polymer -metal matrix composites is  incorporating highly reinforced nano iron  with  limited corrosion resistance into  a compact, corrosion -resistant packaging. The  incorporation of  metal particles, such  as  iron, into  the  polymeric matrix, is a viable technique for  developing new  antibacterial materials. The  impact of  filler length and  matrix on  the  biocide behavior of  polymer/iron compounds was investigated using 2 particles with  sizes of  roughly 10  nm  and  45  m,  as  well  as  polymers with  varied properties. Melt mixing was   employed to  make the   composites, and   the   ion   discharge from these substances was   used   to  learn more about the mechanisms involved. The  link  between nano iron  ion  discharge and  antibacterial behavior in  polymer composites was  also demonstrated by these findings.
