An ecological and viable method for coating of cotton fabrics with silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) has been carried out. Nanocoated fabrics were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray and infrared spectroscopy. Color coordinates and silver release were assessed and the impact of repeated washings was evaluated. Silver contents were measured using atomic absorption spectroscopy and were 109.07 and 97.85 mg/kg for the fabrics treated with 100 ppm of AgNPs in presence… CONTINUE READING
