In recent times, the search for innovative material to fabricate smart textiles has been increasing to satisfy the expectation and needs of the consumers, as the textile material plays a key role in the evolution of human culture. Further, the textile materials provide an excellent environment for the microbes to grow, because of their large surface area and ability to retain moisture. In addition, the growth of harmful bacteria on the textile material not only damages them but also leads to… 
Gold Nanoparticles Synthesis and Antimicrobial Effect on Fibrous Materials
This review highlighted the most used methods for AuNPs preparation and the current studies on the topic in order to obtain AuNPS with suitable properties for antimicrobial applications and minimize the environmental concerns in their production.
A Supervised Machine-Learning Prediction of Textile’s Antimicrobial Capacity Coated with Nanomaterials
Textile materials, due to their large surface area and moisture retention capacity, allow the growth of microorganisms, causing undesired effects on the textile and on the end-users. The textile
Development of Sustainable and Functional Fabrics from Recycled and Nanocomposite Polyester Fibers
Antimicrobial knitted and woven fabrics were developed from recycled polyester (PET) and silver nanocomposite (SNC) fibers. Two different fabrics were produced from two different blend proportions of
Copper nanocluster composites for analytical (bio)-sensing and imaging: a review
This review systematically summarize absorption, fluorescence, electrochemiluminescence, and catalytic properties and focus on the multiple factors that affect the fluorescence properties of CuNCs.
Engineered Cu-PEN Composites at the Nanoscale: Preparation and Characterisation
As polymeric materials are already used in many industries, the range of their applications is constantly expanding. Therefore, their preparation procedures and the resulting properties require
Design Thinking Applied to Home Textiles Innovation: A Case Study in an Elderly Centre in Hong Kong
The ageing society is a challenging social issue, yet it implies a growing demand for elderly goods and services. The current development of elderly textile products, however, appears to neglect


Antimicrobial Approaches for Textiles: From Research to Market
This review mainly intends to provide an overview of antimicrobial agents and treatments that can be performed to produce antimicrobial textiles, using chemical or physical approaches, which are under development or already commercially available in the form of isolated agents or textile fibers or fabrics.
Determination of silver nanoparticle release from antibacterial fabrics into artificial sweat
The results showed that silver was not detected in some commercial fabrics and the quantity of silver released from commercially claimed nanosilver and laboratory-prepared silver coated fabrics into various formulations of artificial sweat was likely to be dependent on the amount of silver coating, the fabric quality and the artificial sweat formulations including its pH.
Bacterial Growth and Death on Cotton Fabrics Conformally Coated with ZnO Thin Films of Varying Thicknesses via Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)
Hospital fabrics are commonly exposed to multiple patients and contaminated surfaces between washing/sterilization cycles. Consequently, these textiles act as vectors for the spread of diseases,
Antimicrobial activity of textiles with selected dyes and finishing agents used in the textile industry
It is shown in this paper that cationic dyes and chemical finishing agents for textiles exhibit antimicrobial properties both in solution and when present on textile products. The dye Maxilon Navy
Antimicrobial, UV Resistant and Thermal Comfort Properties of Chitosan- and Aloe vera-Modified Cotton Woven Fabric
Health and hygiene are the primary obligations for human beings to live comfortably and work with maximum safety. The aim of the present work is to develop environmentally friendly protective
Evaluation of Antimicrobial-Treated Fabric Properties
The simplicity, and good reproducibility, of the test procedure supports its use for the rapid screening and assessment of fabric specimens for antimicrobial activity.
Durable antimicrobial cotton textiles modified with inorganic nanoparticles
Numerous inorganic nanoparticles can impart antimicrobial properties to cotton textiles; however, the antimicrobial performance of the modified textile products is generally less durable. To solve
In vitro bactericidal effect of ultrasonically sol–gel-coated novel CuO/TiO2/PEG/cotton nanocomposite for wound care
The results show that such functionalized cotton fibers could actively fight the spread of bacterial infections by preventing bacterial adhesion, enabling more efficient bonding, and ultrasonically promoting generation of nanoparticles and their strong adhesion to the fabric surface.
Textile Functionalization and Its Effects on the Release of Silver Nanoparticles into Artificial Sweat.
After measuring different Ag-NP types in their pristine form with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry in the single particle mode, there is evidence that particle modifications, like surface coating, may also influence the dissolution behavior of the Ag-NPs in the sweat solutions.
