Preparation and Properties of Silver Antimicrobial Nonwovens

D.V. Parikh


The presentation will be on a cation-exchange-based development of silver antimicrobial nonwovens from (a) the sodium salt of carboxymethylated cotton, and (b) commercially available calcium alginate dressings that should be effective for burn wounds. From the behavior of antimicrobial release and the suppression of bacterial proliferation, it was apparent that the dressings containing silver antimicrobial agent would protect the wound surfaces from microbial invasion and effectively suppress bacterial proliferation. Isopropanol/water medium works equally well, and is an option.
