... electron microscopy was used to evaluate the presence and bonding properties of chitosan and nanoAg particles on cotton fabric. SEM and EDX images of cotton fabrics before and after the coating showed that these fabrics were successfully coated with shrimp and crayfish chitosan and nano-Ag (Figs 5, 6). Zhou & Kan (2014) observed that while the SEM images of the fibers in the pure cotton fabric were smooth, the SEM images of the chitosan-coated cotton fibers were not smooth. ...

Chitosan (CS) encapsulated ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared in an aqueous phase at pH 7. Chitosan was initially attached with glycine to make it water-dispersible. The product was precipitated as micro gels by stirring with methanol and poly ethylene glycol mixture at pH∼7. FTIR spectra showed a characteristic peak for the amide functional gro...

Chitosan (CS) is a naturalcationic polysaccharide obtained by deacetylation of chitin, a biopolymer found mainly in the exoskeleton of crab, shrimp shells, etc. The chitosan degree of deacetylation (DD) is an important factor which determines some of the physiochemical and biological properties of chitosan. The present study focuses on evaluating t...

With the industrial developments in recent times, the textile industry also needs sustainable and environmental-friendly resources. Today’s world has been overburdened with the use of synthetic or hazardous materials in day-to-day life. Chitosan polymer obtained from chitin deacetylation, having a lot of properties beneficial to mankind without being hazardous to environment and humans is currently gaining popularity for research and development all over the globe. Antimicrobial and antiviral textile finishing with the help of chitosan is a new trend in the textile field. Also, chitosan having good adsorption properties finds its application in textile effluent treatments. This review reports and discusses multifunctional finishing and dyeing of textiles with chitosan and highlights its application for textile wastewater treatment.
... In Figure 3, it was evident that cell viability and morphology was significantly good compared to control; thus proved significantly about the biocompatibility of the CAc finished denim fabrics. Similar in vitro cytotoxicity assay method was cast-off to explore biocompatibility of the finished fabrics during the literature survey (Eivazzadeh-Keihan et al. 2021;Erdogan 2020;Farouk et al. 2012;Naz et al. 2018). MTT assay method used in many of these research works were found highly correlated with current research. ...

Skin deforming and coefficients of friction during skin and fabric interactions cause discomfort like skin inflammations, infections, and disease. Chitosan+Aloevera composite (CAc) as a finishing agent and the difference in a static and dynamic friction of finished denim was investigated. As chitosan+Aloevera were also reported to prevent a skin infection associated with friction antimicrobial properties and biocompatible properties of finished denim fabric was also evaluated. Anti-microbial efficacy of CAc finished denim-fabric swatches was evaluated using the standard EN ISO 20,645 test methodology. The biocompatible properties of CAc finished denim-fabric swatches were determined using a standard MTT assay method. The CAc finished denim samples exhibited 34 ± 0.57 mm and 35 ± 1.25 mm zones of inhibition for Escherichia coli & Staphylococcus aureus, respectively. The CAc finished denim samples exhibited 35 ± 1.25 mm and 33 ± 1.04 mm zones of inhibition for Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis, respectively. The CAc finished denim-fabric swatches exhibited 30 ± 1.25 mm and 29 ± 0.57 mm of inhibitory zones agaisnt E. coli and S. aureus, respectively after 2nd wash. In contrast, the samples after 10th wash did not exhibit an antibacterial activity.
... In general, the approaches to imparting antibacterial activity to nonwovens include surface finishing and blending modification of raw materials. The finishing process is commonly employed to introduce antibacterial agents into fabrics possessing a high strength, such as woven fabrics [18,19], spunlace nonwovens [20][21][22], needle-punched nonwovens [23] and spunbonded nonwovens [24,25]. In contrast with these fabrics, meltblown nonwovens are not suitable for the antibacterial finishing process due to their poor strength [26][27][28]. ...

Meltblown (MB) nonwovens as air filter materials have played an important role in protecting people from microbe infection in the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic enters the third year in this current global event, it becomes more and more beneficial to develop more functional MB nonwovens with special surface selectivity as well as antibacterial activities. In this article, an antibacterial polypropylene MB nonwoven doped with nano silicon nitride (Si3N4), one of ceramic materials, was developed. With the introduction of Si3N4, both the average diameter of the fibers and the pore diameter and porosity of the nonwovens can be tailored. Moreover, the nonwovens having a single-side moisture transportation, which would be more comfortable in use for respirators or masks, was designed by imparting a hydrophobicity gradient through the single-side superhydrophobic finishing of reactive organic/inorganic silicon coprecipitation in situ. After a nano/micro structural SiO2 precipitation on one side of the fabric surfaces, the contact angles were up to 161.7° from 141.0° originally. The nonwovens were evaluated on antibacterial activity, the result of which indicated that they had a high antibacterial activity when the dosage of Si3N4 was 0.6 wt%. The bacteriostatic rate against E. coli and S. aureus was up to over 96%. Due to the nontoxicity and excellent antibacterial activity of Si3N4, this MB nonwovens are promising as a high-efficiency air filter material, particularly during the pandemic.
