Abstract:

This article focuses on a preliminary investigation into the preparation of knitted fabrics from a 300-filament chitosan yarn containing nanoparticles of silver, platinum, copper and gold. The chitosan yarn was assessed with respect to its suitability for the preparation of knitted fabrics on a numerically controlled flat bed knitting machine. Estimated were mechanical and sorption properties, apparent density, thickness and air permeability of knitted fabrics made up of chitosan yarn functionalised by nanoparticles.
