In this work an innovative formulation of bone cement for the treatment of bone tumor and its associated complications has been designed by preparing a new class of Fe3O4–Ag nanostructures, using gallic acid as a reducing agent. The obtained nanoparticles have been introduced in polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)-based composite cement evaluating the insertion of different amounts and the use of different mixing methods. The morphology, the composition and the antibacterial effect of Fe3O4–Ag nanostructures have been investigated together with the morphology, the composition, the mechanical properties of the nanoparticles-containing composite cements as well as their antibacterial effect. The obtained results revealed a good antimicrobial effect of Fe3O4–Ag nanostructures, a significant influence of their amount and of the used mixing method on the particles dispersion and agglomeration in the PMMA matrix and, as a result, on the mechanical properties. In particular, a better dispersion of nanoparticles was obtained by using the mechanical mixing, reducing the tendency to agglomerate. The increase of nanoparticles amount induced a slight decrease of the mechanical properties; however, the introduction of 10% w/w of Fe3O4–Ag allowed to improve the composites ability to reduce the bacteria adhesion.
