abstract
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to develop textile materials with a pH-sensitive function. Design/methodology/approach - As a start point, the feasibility of incorporating pH-indicators in conventional textiles using standard dyeing processes was investigated. Next, a pH-indicator was incorporated into a nylon nanofibrous structure by adding the dye to the polymer solution before the start of the electro-spinning process. Findings - The authors' results proved that it is possible to develop a pH-sensor using conventional textiles dyed by a standard dyeing process. Also, the incorporation of a pH-indicator dye into a nanofibrous structure was possible. Moreover, reproducible samples could be obtained. Furthermore, the majority of the obtained textile structures showed a clear colour change with a change in acidity. This halochromic behaviour was, however, different from the behaviour of the dyes in solution due to dye-fibre interactions. Originality/value - The knowledge obtained in this study can lead to the development of a textile pH-sensor. This sensor can be used in a broad field of applications since a colour change is a non-disturbing but clear signal which can perform a first warning function.
