Abstract:

This paper presents preliminary results of the direct deposition of nano- and microstructures of zinc oxide on materials used in medicine. The coatings were deposited on cotton gauze and polyamide fabric. During the research the biological activity of these materials was defined. Performed were also tests of doping the ZnO structures with silver obtained. The research has proved that there is a growth of zinc oxide structures both on the gauze and polyamide fabric. The nanostructures deposited on it did not become detached from the surface, even though the material was subjected to ultrasonic rinsing. In addition, good biocidal properties of both of the textile materials modified were found. Furthermore a complex surface analysis of catheters: vascular and urological was made. ZnO was deposited on catheters, but they were characterised by low adhesion.
