Nano-fibres containing quaternised chitosan (QCh) have been successfully prepared by electrospinning of QCh solutions mixed with poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA). The average fibre diameter is in the range of 60-200 nm. UV irradiation of the composite electrospun nano-fibrous mats containing triethylene glycol diacrylate as cross-linking agent has resulted in stabilising of the nano-fibres against disintegration in water or water vapours. Microbiological screening has demonstrated the antibacterial… CONTINUE READING
