    This study focuses on the surface modification of polyamide via chitosan-based hydrogels, which are responsive to pH and temperature changes. SEM and DSC were used for the hydrogels' characterization; Pore Volume Distribution measurements were realized for the polyamide samples' characterization. The hydrogels' response to temperature changes was determined spectrophotometrically and to pH changes gravimetrically. The polyamide samples' response to pH and temperature changes was determined gravimetrically and expressed as the samples' water uptake/loss or moisture regain/loss. The aim of this work was to develop stimuli-responsive polyamide which could serve for controlled substance release and increased wear comfort with a variety of applications in protection clothing and sportswear.
