Abstract:

The area of technical textile applications is very wide, with one of the most important being medical textiles. Polymer-iodine complexes (i.e. iodophors) are widely used in antiseptic products. Nanofibres with iodine may be used to disinfect skin in medicine, and iodine is also characterised by a fungicidal effect. The aim of this research was to form an electrospun PVA mat from nanofibres with iodine and establish the influence of iodine dissolved in
ethanol on the structure of electrospun mats. The results showed that it is possible to form a PVA nonwoven mat with an iodine element inserted by the electrospinning process, which has an influence on the structure of the electrospun nonwoven mat.
