Cover Story (view full-size image): In recent years, the technique of encapsulation or inclusion of medicine/active principle in polymer functional matrices has been employed to obtain textile materials with controlled drug release properties. In this study, a sol–gel-based coating was developed and used as an entrapping polymeric cross-linked network to deliver a molecule with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The combination of the functionality and transparency provided by the developed hybrid coating with its easy processability could represent an innovative method to fabricate smart textiles for healthcare and biomedical applications.
