ABSTRACT

Antimicrobial fibers were prepared by an electro-spinning method. Polystyrene hydantoin (PSH) was employed as an antimicrobial precursor to produce an electro-spun antimicrobial acrylic fiber. Increasing the surface area of hydrophobic antimicrobial-fibers provides enhanced antimicrobial efficacy. The biocidal activity of electro-spun acrylic fibers could be rendered through chlorine bleach treatment, and the antimicrobial effectiveness against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria was investigated. In addition, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) demonstrated the feature of the electro-spun fibers.
