Eco-Safe Antibacterial Fiber Discovered, KTH Royal Institute of Technology Study

Published: Feb 15, 2013

Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm have discovered an antibacterial polymer that can be used in everyday products such as sportswear, diapers and bandages, without causing resistant bacteria. "We have managed to find an antibacterial polymer that attaches stably to cellulose and therefore cannot be released into the environment," says Josefin IllergÄrd, a chemistry researcher at KTH.
