It has high degree of micro-porosity and widerapplication in many fields. A surgical mask is intend to be worn by healthprofessionals during surgery and other times to catch the bacteria shed inliquid droplets and aerosols from the wearers mouth and nose. So in order toincrease the absorption we have incorporated activated charcoal powder indisposable surgical mask and proposed to test for performance using pulsedosimeter and bacteria growth.
