Abstract

Certain antimicrobial agents, particularly chitosan- or chitin-based polymers, exhibit increased antimicrobial activity when coat ed onto the surface of a hydrophobic material such as polypropylene. When applied to the surface of a polypropylene nonwoven fabric, for example, the resulting material can be used for diaper liners to reduce odors and promote skin wellness.
