Detecting Silver in Silver-Enabled Textiles by a Newly-Developed Portable Device
In the production of silver-enabled textiles, the amount of silver in the produced textile is always important. The goal of the present study is to develop a simple device that can directly detect silver instead of using destructive tests and calculations. The instrument developed by our group is simple, easy to use, and portable. It gives a voltage response corresponding to the silver content. To show its capabilities, a correlation is presented between the measured voltage and the relative amount of metal (i.e., silver) on silver-enabled textiles after several washing and electrolysis steps. The results of scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDX) measurements are also presented as a reference for the silver determinations.
