    The main focus of textile research in the last decade has been to develop processes and technologies which improve or add extra functionality to classical textiles. This paper presents the antimicrobial activity against a range of bacterial and fungal species of a PES/CO woven textile impregnated by means of ultrasound with nanoparticles of copper oxide. Supplementary data regarding textile and nanoparticle characterization, such as SEM coupled with EDS and IRT (Infrared Thermography) are also presented.
