In recent years, functional fabrics possessing antimicrobial activity have drawn significant interest because antibiotic resistance is becoming widespread among pathogenic microorganisms. The aim of this study was to produce microcapsules incorporating ozonated red pepper seed oil with antimicrobial properties and apply them to nonwoven fabrics to prepare functional textiles. Red pepper seed oil (RPSO) was ozonated and microencapsulated via a complex coacervation method using gelatin (GE) and gum arabic (GA) as wall materials. While microencapsulation yield and oil loading decreased with increases in the amount of surfactant, the mean particle size increased. The antimicrobial activity of the oil was tested via the disc diffusion method. The microcapsules were also tested using the agar well method. While RPSO had no effect on the test microorganisms, the ozonated red pepper seed oil (ORPSO) and microcapsules containing ORPSO were found to be active against the test microorganisms. The microcapsules were then applied to nonwoven fabric using the padding method to produce a disposable functional textile. The microcapsule-impregnated functional fabrics provided a 5log decrease in 1 h. It is therefore possible to functionalize nonwoven fabrics to have antimicrobial activity against antibiotic resistant microorganisms, using microcapsules containing ozonated red pepper seed oil. © 2012 The Authors Letters in Applied Microbiology © 2012 The Society for Applied Microbiology.
