Mechanism of bactericidal and fungicidal activities of textiles covalently modified with alkylated polyethylenimine.

Abstract

Our previous studies have led to a novel "nonrelease" approach to making materials bactericidal by covalently attaching certain moderately hydrophobic polycations to their surfaces. In the present work, this strategy is extended beyond the heretofore-used nonporous materials to include common woven textiles (cotton, wool, nylon, and polyester). Pieces of… (More)
