In this study, we developed multifunctional and durable textile sensors. The fabrics were coated with metal in two steps. At first, pretreatment of fabric was performed, and then copper and silver particles were coated by the chemical reduction method. Hence, the absorbance/adherence of metal was confirmed by the deposition of particles on microfib...

The main aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of microwave irradiation time on the photocatalytic and physiological comfort characteristics of zinc-oxide-nanorod-coated cotton fabrics. An ultra-fast technique was employed to grow the zinc oxide nanorods on cotton fabrics using a microwave-assisted hydrothermal method. The axial (l...
Article
The presented work reported a facile and low-cost approach for creating multifunctional cotton fabrics with hydrophobic, self-cleaning and UV protection properties. The facile dip-pad-dry-cure coating technique was employed to modify the cotton fabric surfaces with 1–3 wt% concentration of ZnO nanoparticles. The characterizations of surface morphol...
Article
The main aim of this work is to develop TiO2 nanoflowers coated polyester (PET) fabric for antibacterial and UV protection applications. The TiO2 nanoflowers were grown on PET fabric by a two-step method. In first step, the polyester fabric was seeded using sol-gel method and in second step the nanoflowers were grown on the seeded PET fabric by hyd...
Article
Coronavirus belongs to the novel virulent strains of the respiratory viruses. It is an invisible enemy having significant threats to human health. The major trouble is that the spread of coronavirus is not limited to its transmission from human to human (by contact, fomites, and droplets) but also continue to transmit from contaminated surfaces to...

In this present research, a novel microwave hydrothermal method was applied to cotton fabrics to develop a superhydrophobic surface by rapid synthesis of aligned ZnO nanorods on the surface of the cotton fabric. A two-step approach was used to grow the ZnO nanorods. Firstly, the cotton fabric was coated by a seed layer of ZnO nanocrystals, synthesi...
Article
This work was focused on the development of superhydrophobic and UV protective cotton fabric by simple approach. Cotton fabric was coated with TiO2 particles by one step hydrothermal reaction. TiO2 coated fabric was subsequent treated with Trimethoxy(octadecyl)silane (OTMS). The effect of hydrothermal reaction time on synthesis of nanoparticles was...
Conference Paper
Large number of studies have been conducted on TiO2-based photocatalytic disinfection including bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae, among others. The key parameters for tailoring the surface of the photoactive nanostructures such as the metal functionalization with bacteriostatic properties, hydrophilicity, textural porosity, morphology and the format...
Article
The current study was focused on the development of electrically conductive composites of carbon particle filled cotton fabric/epoxy systems. The carbon particles were refined to the scale of micro/nanoparticles using ball milling and morphological properties were studied by Malvern zetasizer and SEM. The influence of different concentrations of ca...
Article
The presented research work proposed a simple technique to metalize the milife fabric (very fine thickness) with silver coating. The polyester fabrics were firstly sensitized with copper, and then silver plating was performed on the surface. The presence of silver over the fabric was observed by scanning electron microscope and respective EDX spect...

The main purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of knitted fabric structures and material composition on moisture management properties. Fiber type and fabric structure have significant influence on moisture management properties of knitted fabrics. In this article, single jersey, plaited jersey and hybrid plaited jersey knitted fabric...
Article
The presented study proposed simple and low-cost approach for improvement in UV protection and superhydrophobic properties of cotton fabrics by coating of mechanically activated fly ash particles. The maximum UV blocking was observed for 3 wt% fly ash, where UV transmittance decreased from 14.19% of untreated fabric to 0.11% of coated fabric. After...
