Abstract:

The aim of this research was to develop the formulation of chitosan in combination with honey in different mass proportions of each of the components within the separate mixture. Such a formulation could serve as a functional coating suitable for wound healing. From the perspective of different formulations used within research presented, it is assumed that the different mass fraction of components will affect antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of the functionalised substrate differently. To apply the separate formulation onto a non-woven viscose substrate, the conventional pad-drying process was selected. Moreover a study of the effectiveness of the individual treatment was performed systematically, which is also reflected in the systematics of the experimental techniques selected. Considering antioxidant and antimicrobial action, honey-functionalised non-woven viscose shows higher effectiveness if compared to non-woven viscose functionalized with the chitosan:honey combination.
