Book Description :

Medical applications of technical textiles are an expanding field of research. One of the added values of these new materials would be that they were suitable to contain and release active compounds in a controlled and sustained manner. Drug incorporation and release from synthetic fibers is related to the interaction of the drug with the polymer and probably greatly depends on the surface chemistry of the fiber. Plasma technology is a tool that enables to modify physical and chemical properties of the first nanometers of the fibers without affecting the bulk of the material. Applied to the medical textile field, plasma treatment of polymer fibres can lead to the design of new textile-based drug delivery systems. The novelty of this PhD. Thesis rests upon the modification of the drug/fiber interactions by plasma treatment to allow the modulation of the loading and the release of active principles (pharmaceutics and cosmetics) from the textile-based drug delivery systems, without requiring the use of any further chemicals. This Thesis aims at the development of two families of textile-based drug delivery systems, based on a novel surface functionalization by plasma treatment, with suitable characteristics for topical use as medical devices, or for clinical application in soft tissue repair. It is therefore organized in two distinct parts. In both parts of this thesis a general scheme has been followed: we have investigated the surface modification of textile materials with different types of plasmas (atmospheric and low pressure plasma), characterizing the surface modifications achieved by different complementary techniques. The effects of the plasma treatment have been evaluated on the subsequent incorporation of active pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. In the last step, the drug release to a standard medium has been studied by "in-vitro" dissolution assays. The first part is focused on medical textiles for topical application. Therein, the surface modification of polyamide 66 elastic-compressive knitted fabrics has been studied by corona plasma and low pressure plasma. The work has studied in parallel laboratory prepared fabrics and industrially finished fabrics, with views on the potential implementation of the proposed process in the textile industrial chain. Plasma treatment improved the release kinetics of anti-inflammatory pharmaceutic (ketoprofen) and of lipolitic cosmetic (caffeine) active principles, loaded in the polyamide 66 fabrics. A fundamental study comparing three different molecules of the same chemical family (caffeine, theobromine, pentoxifylline) has been performed regarding loading and release of the drugs. The second part focuses on textiles used as implants for soft tissue repair (e.g. hernia). The fiber surface of a polypropylene mesh has been modified by corona plasma and low-pressure plasma. The treatments evaluated had a major effect on the loading of antibiotic (ampicillin) by increasing it three times. As in vitro release kinetics of the drug was very fast, coating of the ampillicin-loaded polypropylene meshes with a biocompatible polymer was investigated by plasma polymerization.

With the public enhanced awareness towards eco-preservation, eco-safety and health concerns, environmentally benign, nontoxic and sustainable bioresource materials produced mainly from non-food crops have revolutionized all industrial sectors particularly textile industry. In recent years, textile industries in developed countries are getting increasing interest in global interest due to the varied and changing world market conditions in terms of price, durability and fiber mixtures as well as design, colors, weight, ease of handling and product safety. The increasing environmental and health concerns owing to the use of large quantities of water and hazardous chemicals in conventional textile finishing processes lead to the design and development of new dyeing strategies and technologies. Effluents produced from these textiles wet processing industries are very diverse in chemical composition, ranging from inorganic finishing agents, surfactants, chlorine compounds, salts, total phosphate to polymers and organic products. This aspect forced western countries to exploit their high technical skills in the advancements of textile materials for high quality technical performances, and development of cleaner production technologies for cost effective and value-added textile materials. Therefore, vast and effective research investigations have been undertaken all over the world to minimize the negative environmental impact of synthetic chemical agents through the sustainable harvest of eco-friendly bioresource materials. The book will discuss following research developments in academic and industry: Improvement in dye extraction and its applications Impact of textile dyeing on environment Textile finishing by natural and ecofriendly means Natural dyes as environmental-friendly bioresource products Textile effluent remediation via physical, chemical and biological processes.

Book Description :

Plasma processing is a high-technology discipline in tailoring surface properties and in obtaining functional polymers of advanced materials without changing the material's bulk. Comparing with solid polymeric materials, special care should be taken for surface activation of textiles due to their complex geometries. It was found that modification is strongly influenced by both plasma parameters and fabric structure. As compared to air, CO2, and water vapor, Ar/O2 and He/O2 mixtures were found to be very effective for surface hydrophilization of polyester textiles due to the long-lasting free radical lifetimes. The modified surfaces were not stable for a long time due to restructuring of the polar functional groups. Therefore, plasma coatings containing functional groups are required in order to obtain a permanent surface modification. Permanent nanoporous coatings were deposited in order to obtain functional surfaces which contain accessible functionalities within the entire coating volume. This novel approach is essentially based on a fine control of simultaneous deposition and etching processes during plasma co-polymerization of ammonia with hydrocarbons. A nanoporous structure with a large specific surface area was achieved that contained functional groups inside the coating volume, which were accessible to e.g. dye molecules, thus facilitating substrate independent dyeing. A permanent hydrophilic modification of material surfaces was obtained by introducing nitrogen polar functionalities, depending on the NH3 to hydrocarbon ratio, which is mostly due to a replacement of carbon in a-C: H: N films. This novel combination of polar groups with a suitable texturing realized within crosslinked aC: H: N coatings proved to be an efficient method providing a long-term mechanical stability of superhydrophilic coatings. Moreover, plasma coated material surfaces contain huge numbers of functional groups which can chemically interact with matrix materials and hence, yield strong covalent bond between fiber and matrix. The coatings show a large surface area which enhances the contact area and surface texturing and additionally promotes mechanical interlocking. Thus, the novel, developed nanoporous coatings represent a platform for diverse multifunctional applications in the surface enhancement of advanced material

Book Description :

The production of textile materials comprises a very large and complex global industry that utilises a diverse range of fibre types and creates a variety of textile products. As the great majority of such products are coloured, predominantly using aqueous dyeing processes, the coloration of textiles is a large-scale global business in which complex procedures are used to apply different types of dye to the various types of textile material. The development of such dyeing processes is the result of substantial research activity, undertaken over many decades, into the physico-chemical aspects of dye adsorption and the establishment of ‘dyeing theory’, which seeks to describe the mechanism by which dyes interact with textile fibres. Physico-Chemical Aspects of Textile Coloration provides a comprehensive treatment of the physical chemistry involved in the dyeing of the major types of natural, man-made and synthetic fibres with the principal types of dye. The book covers: fundamental aspects of the physical and chemical structure of both fibres and dyes, together with the structure and properties of water, in relation to dyeing; dyeing as an area of study as well as the terminology employed in dyeing technology and science; contemporary views of intermolecular forces and the nature of the interactions that can occur between dyes and fibres at a molecular level; fundamental principles involved in dyeing theory, as represented by the thermodynamics and kinetics of dye sorption; detailed accounts of the mechanism of dyeing that applies to cotton (and other cellulosic fibres), polyester, polyamide, wool, polyacrylonitrile and silk fibres; non-aqueous dyeing, as represented by the use of air, organic solvents and supercritical CO2 fluid as alternatives to water as application medium. The up-to-date text is supported by a large number of tables, figures and illustrations as well as footnotes and widespread use of references to published work. The book is essential reading for students, teachers, researchers and professionals involved in textile coloration.
