The cellulose is a polysaccharide with a high number of alcoholic-OH groups. These alcoholic-OH groups are able to link TiO2 and cellulose through a spacer. According to Meilert et al. (2005), this leads to the formation of a covalent bond as a result of the esterification of the carboxyl groups. Succinic acid has been used as a spacer with two terminal COOH groups. The chemical inertness of the spacer is warranted by the succinic single bond. Binding of the TiO2 to the alcoholic-OH group of cellulose through a polycarboxylic spacer is shown in Fig.

A fabric-supported, chitosan-modified, temperature-responsive PNIPAAm (PNIPAAm/PU) hydrogel was reported for use in the preparation of facial masks; it feels tender and soft without obvious syneresis and rapidly responds to changes in temperature varying from 32 C to 35 C. Ingredients loaded in hydrogels are released slowly at body temperature; the incorporation of chitosan renders the facial mask antibacterial. Besides temperature-active reversible wettability and water absorbency, light, pH, or redox also can control the water behavior of memory polymer coating surfaces by solegel method.
