Odor poses a growing concern in clothing and apparel applications due to laundering limitations at managing odor-causing microorganisms. Herein, a novel silver-polymer complex was applied to textile materials and studied using quantitative antimicrobial assays, gas chromatography techniques, and odor panel sensory tests to ascertain odor control function and effectiveness. A known chemical odor pathway involving leucine conversion to isovaleric acid was studied and found to be disrupted in silver-treated fabrics. Furthermore, its odor absorption function was confirmed with up to 90% retention of select thiol and fatty acid odors at body temperature in a model odor bouquet. Lastly, human sensory studies were used to support laboratory odor measurements using seven-day wear trials and milk odor generation techniques after 50 launderings.
