About the book

Next-generation textiles represent an exciting and interesting topic within the textiles sector. They are an intersection set between life science (for example medicine, microbiology, and comfort or strain) and technical applications (textile chemistry, engineering, and testing and certification). Developments in one of these areas affect the other one; for example, the invention of superabsorbent and gel-forming materials affected the production of a new type of baby diapers. Next-generation textiles can also be considered an important part of technical textiles, being used for different purposes such as chemical and biohazard protection. They present an important aspect from an economic point of view and the necessity for their production has been increasing; for example, a huge necessity for smart medical textiles comes from the increase of the elderly population in developed countries. In the last few decades, the rapid development of command cotton fabrics also occurred. This affects all textile sectors, for example, biodegradable fibers for implantations, three-dimension spacer fabrics, and reduction of bacterial growth by using silver ion-based textiles finishing. In this and other ways, the fields concerning the next-generation textiles have been growing rapidly and are becoming a more complex area to understand.

About the editor

Hassan Ibrahim

National Research Centre

Dr. Hassan Ibrahim is an associate professor of Textile Chemistry and Technology at National Research Center, Cairo, Egypt. He received his Ph.D in Organic Chemistry in 2011 from Ain Shams University. He published 24 technical papers, one review article, and one book chapter with international publishers. He supervised 8 PhD and M.Sc. thesis, and participated in 14 national and international projects dealing with organic and environmental chemistry, hazardous wastes, medical textiles, nanotechnology, and electrospun nanofibers formation. He has expertise in applied chemistry and technology of organic chemistry, especially in carbohydrates, polymers, pollution prevention, preparation, and applications of nanoparticles (polymer chemistry, chemistry of chitosan, chitosan modification, nanoparticles preparation, and electrospinning technique). He built this model after years of research and teaching at university and research centers. He was the Egyptian National Representative of the Chemistry and Human Health Division Committee (VII) at the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) in 2018-2019, and is currently a member of several national committees of pure and applied chemistry. He has been awarded for the best PhD thesis in 2010 from national research center, Cairo, Egypt.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Josipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
