The fabrication of antimicrobial textile nanocomposite by in situ synthesis of Cu-based nanoparticles on cotton fabrics modified with different polycarboxylic acids was discussed in this study. In order to evaluate the influence of carboxyl group content on Cu2+-ions adsorption, their subsequent reduction with sodium borohydride and formation of Cu-based nanoparticles, cotton fabrics were modified with succinic, citric and 1,2,3,4-butanetetracarboxylic acids. It was shown that the larger the number of carboxyl groups in applied acid, the larger the content of free carboxyl groups on the fibers and consequently, the larger the Cu2+-ions uptake and total amounts of Cu-based nanoparticles. On the basis of the XPS and XRD measurements, it was suggested that synthesized nanoparticles were mixture of Cu2O and CuO. Fabricated nanocomposites provided maximum reduction of Gram-negative bacterium E. coli and Gram-positive bacterium S. aureus and controlled release of Cu2+-ions in physiological s...aline solution which are necessary prerequisites for infection prevention.
