key words: Titanium, polymers, antifungal properties, wettability, mechanical properties


Titanium compounds in view of their physicochemical properties constitute interesting materials applied in chemical synthesis. They are used for preparation of antifungal agents as well as for production of self-cleaning coatings. Moreover, mentioned inorganic compounds are characterized by a capability of neutralizing of unpleasant odor. Those all characteristics make these substances useful in many fields. In the framework of presented research series of polymer materials modified with titanium and titanium oxide have been obtained by means of photopolymerization. In the further step, studies on such synthesized materials have been conducted with particular emphasis on determining a mechanical properties and wettability. Hardness of prepared polymers have been tested by means of Shore durometer. Based on the research it can be concluded that addition of titanium compounds to the polymer matrix resulted in the improvement of mechanical properties as well as in an increase of hydrophobicity. It is worth mentioning that it is possible to manipulate properties of the obtained compositions by the introduction of an appropriate amount of additive into their matrices.
