    Abstract

    The aim of the research presented in this chapter was to prepare cotton fabrics with "intelligent" liquid management properties by functional finishing with stimuli-responsive microgel. The targeted use of these fabrics is in performance apparel, where the added value of controlled ("on-demand") liquid management could enable the transformation of cotton into an advanced material. Functional finishing using the surface modification approach is expected to introduce advanced properties to the material without impairing its intrinsic properties, which currently make cotton the most widely used textile material.
