The present project aims the production of an innovative 24/06/2019 heterostructured system for the diffusion of active compounds by solar activation from textile substrates through the functional properties of polymeric microcapsules functionalized on their surface with photocatalytic nanomaterials (photocatalytic microcapsules).
This central objective will allow the development of new textile products with advanced properties conferred by the functionalisation of textiles with microcapsules customized for each product.
