Effects of plasma treatment on water sorption in viscose fibres
Miha Devetak, Nejc Skoporc, Martin Rigler, Zdenka Peršin, Irena Drevenšek Olenik, Martin Čopič, Karin Stana-Kleinschek, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: We investigated water sorption in viscose nonwoven fibres manufactured by Tosama d.d. with the surface density of 175 g/m2. A comparison between untreated fibres and by oxygen plasma treated fibres was made using optical polarization microscopy. Plasma treatment was done for 10 minutes at pressure of 75 Pa at current of 250 mA at the power of 500 W. Swelling was characterized by measurements of fibre diameter. Modifications of intensity of the polarized light transmitted through the fibre were measured as a function of time of exposure to water. Characteristic swelling and intensity modification times were resolved for untreated and oxygen plasma treated fibres. The swelling time of oxygen plasma in comparison to untreated plasma is reduced by the factor of 0.54 and intensity change time by the factor of 0.4. From the characteristic swelling and intensity change times it was concluded that oxygen plasma treatment of viscose increases the speed of water sorption.

Binding silver nano-particles onto viscose non-woven using different commercial sol-gel procedures
Tanja Pivec, Zdenka Peršin, Silvo Hribernik, Tina Maver, Mitja Kolar, Karin Stana-Kleinschek, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: The paper presents possible solution of Ag binding using commercial sol-gel systems which enable its low release into a wound, providing a good antimicrobial effect on those bacterial cultures that are most likely present in the wound. The influence of different sol-gel systems on the hydrophilic properties of carrier materials and the level of released silver has been studied. The results showed that sol-gel as binding-systems could provide proper hydrophilic properties of material, whilst binding silver strongly enough providing at the same time excellent antimicrobial activity of the treated viscose meterials.

Adsorption and antibacterial activity of soluble and precipitated chitosan on cellulose viscose fibers
Lidija Fras Zemljič, Tijana Ristić, Tina Tkavc, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: The aim and novelty of this work was to compare the adsorption of totally-soluble chitosan (acidic solution) against the adsorption of precipitated chitosan, onto cellulose fibers. The influences of both these chitosan-adsorption procedures on a final amino groupćs content in functionalized cellulose fibers were studied, using potentiometric titration and the conventional spectrophotometric C.I. Acid Orange 7 method. Surface modification and adsorption of chitosan were, in addition, monitored by determining XPS spectra. The antimicrobial activities of both chitosan- functionalised cellulose fibers were examined, in regard to pathogen bacteria and fungus.

Mild oxidation of cellulose fibers using dioxygen as ultimate oxidizing agent
Gabriela Biliuta, Lidija Fras Zemljič, Valeria Harabagiu, Sergiu Coseri, 2011, original scientific article

Abstract: Two types of regenerate cellulose fibres were oxidized under mild conditions, by using N-hydroxyphthalimide as catalyst and molecular oxygen as ultimate oxidizing agent. The amounts of negatively charged groups introduced were determined by means of potentiometric titration. The degree of polymerization and molar mass of the oxidized fibres determined viscosimetrically, has been found to be almost unaffected during oxidation.

Viscose functionalisation with a combination of chitosan/BTCA using microwaves
Olivera Šauperl, Julija Volmajer Valh, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: Improved hygiene and health care standards have a great impact on the development of hygiene and health care products. For this purpose, viscose is a very popular substrate. One of the most promising anti-microbial compounds of modern times is chitosan. The anti-microbial action of this polysaccharide depends on the amino group amount, which is crucial for ensuring the effectiveness of anti-microbial treated material. In textile finishing, 1,2,3,4-buthanetetracarboxylic acid (BTCA) is usually used as a non-formaldehyde crease-resistant reagent. But, on the other hand, the negatively charged carboxyl groups of BTCA can be explored as additional binding sites for positively-charged protonated amino groups of chitosan. When using microwaves, polar materials (e.g. chitosan) orient and reorient themselves according to the direction of the electro-magnetic field, which means that chitosan chain-bending may have taken place during the drying with microwaves. This could result in a higher specific surface of the chitosan and, consequently, in a higher proportion of available amino groups. It is concluded that the combination chitosan/BTCA supported by microwaves drying represents an ideal combination to increase the proportion of available amino groups.

Influence of the temperature on the efficiency of cellulose treatment using copolymer chitosan-eugenol
Olivera Šauperl, Jasna Tompa, Julija Volmajer Valh, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: In order to achieve effective antimicrobial protection of textile materials against microorganisms, a natural compound called chitosan has become very interesting. In regard to the antimicrobial protection of textile materials, functionalization with chitosan does not affect some other properties, such as anti-oxidative or any other action. For this reason, it seems appropriate for chitosan to be combined with any natural antimicrobial active compound, such as eugenol, an extract of clove oil. During this research viscose as a representative of cellulose fibers was used, because it can be functionalized relatively easily. In terms of functionalization, the drying temperature of viscose, after antimicrobial compound application onto substrate, as well as the successful synthesis of copolymer chitosan/eugenol is also important. FTIR spectroscopy was used to evaluate the efficiency of synthesizing a chitosan/eugenol graft copolymer. The spectrophotometric method Acid Orange 7 was chosen as a means for determining the proportion of available antimicrobial active amino groups. In addition, microbiological testing of selected pathogenic micro-organisms was also performed. The results were compared with the results for viscose functionalized by a 1% solution of chitosan.
