Abstract:

This research is based on the use of a variety of natural compounds and their mixtures with chitosan in order to create an efficient textile product for sanitary/medical use which shows antimicrobial and antioxidant effectiveness at the same time. It is assumed that natural compounds showing antimicrobial and antioxidant efficacy also do so even when applied on a non-woven viscose substrate intended for wound healing. A study of the effectiveness of the individual treatment was performed using antimicrobial (dynamic-stress test) and anti-oxidative (ABTS•+) testing. It was confirmed that the properties of functionalised viscose treated with different functionalisation formulations differ in dependence on the separate formulations. Results show that for a comprehensive insight into the antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of functionalised viscose, a very detailed study of the results of antimicrobial and antioxidant testing is needed in order for it to be possible to create a textile material with the necessary functionality.
