Abstract: Glycidyl methacrylate-cotton materials come from chemical or physical cotton surface activation to insert glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) appendages with a strong and stable chemical linkage. GMA appendages add new properties of absorption and release to cotton fibers which at the same time maintain all their peculiar properties. Glycidyl methacrylate-cotton materials are suitable to be used for a large spectrum of more or less sophisticated applications from waste water filtration to drug delivery devices development. They simply act as sponges, suggesting that cotton surface exposes a sort of nano structure made by a GMA network.
