Abstract

Cotton/viscose rayon muslin is subjected to carboxymethylation with a low degree of substitution to improve the sorption of antibacterial compounds in the dressing of wounds. Results indicate that this form of carboxymethylation reduces the porosity and the wettability of the fibres, but not so significantly as to render the muslin unfit for dressing wounds.
