Abstract:

In order to impart photo-catalytic properties to fibres, one can modify them by means of titanium dioxide. Such a modification should provide the best effectiveness with no deterioration in the basic properties of the fibres modified. Accordingly the modifiers should be deposited on the surface of fibres instead of adding them to the whole mass of the fibreforming polymer. To characterise polypropylene fibres (PP) modified with titanium dioxide doped with nano silver (TiO2/Ag), Raman micro-spectroscopy and SEM/EDS microanalysis were used. The combination of both techniques in the analysis of the fibre surface and cross-section allows qualitative and structural assessment of the distribution of titania modifier in the fibre.
