In this paper, novel method of poly-NiPAAm/chitosan (PNCS) microgel incorporation on textile fabric by the use of sol-gel technology is presented. Namely, among methods for chemical modification of textile fibres, sol-gel technology takes an important place, enabling the preparation of textiles with new or improved functional properties. For this purpose, different sol-gel precursors can be used, with trialkoxysilanes (R’–Si(OR)3), where R’ stands for organic functional group, being the most representative ones. In the reaction of hydrolysis and subsequent condensation they form continuous polysiloxane film, which has the ability to physically entrap different additives. For this kind of physically modified polysiloxane matrix, better adsorption and even distribution of additives is characteristic in comparison to conventional finishing. Polysiloxane films are also characterised by thickness of only few 10 nm as well as by their simultaneous elasticity of polymer and hardness of ceramic [1-3].
