Electrospun nanofibers based Sanitary napkins IIT Hyderabad

Tell the world

Overview

Commercially available feminine sanitary napkins are composed of cellulosic microfibers with superabsorbent polymers (SAP) embedded into their matrix. Continuous use of these sanitary napkins and thus exposure to SAP may lead to adverse health effects and on environment due to non-biodegradability of SAPs. We have developed cellulose acetate electrospun nanofibers based sanitary napkins without SAPs which are not only safe to user and environment but also show better performance.
