The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "The maximum dissolved iodine of the fiber samples was determined, and microbiological assay was carried out to test their effect on the bacterial growth. SEM images showed that the polymer fibers were linear, homogenous, and contained no beads. The PALS results, both the o-positronium (o-Ps) lifetime values and distributions, revealed the changes of the free volume holes of fibers as a function of their composition and the presence of iodine."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The micro- and macrostructural characterisation of polymer fiber mats enabled the selection of the required composition from the point of their applicability as a wound dressing."
