This research project advances our sustainable medical textiles stream to develop intelligent textiles that contain bioactive nanofiber and stimuli-responsive nanomaterials to detect the virus and bacteria and disinfect them. The visionary approach of this concept is based on the possibility of developing a new generation of medical textiles with synergistically combined chemically driven and light-assisted self-disinfection properties. The key in this research direction is the development of low-cost surface functionalities and textile design to enable sustainable industrial development.
