Tasks (TM3)

TM3 (tasks description)

·

Study of appropriate (both chemical and physical) methods for surface modification of textile material for improved incorporation (affinity, bonding) of polymeric surface modifying systems (bulk hydrogels; nano- and micro-particles; films; etc.);

·

physico-chemical characterization of surface functionalization obtained;

·

testing the performance variables (durability; stimuli responsiveness; controlled-release) of new advanced material.

TM3 (expected outcome)

·

participates in the ADVANBIOTEX project for a period of one year;

·

is expected to actively disseminate results through patents, publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at international conferences.
