Abstract

[Problem to be Solved] A sheet made of a fabric or paper coated with a substance which has a strong function to adsorb, remove and make harmless microbes such as bacteria and viruses is to be configured so as to be usable as a filter, a mask or the like capable of removing the microbes such as the bacteria and viruses. [Solving Means] A sheet made of a fabric which uses a fibrous material, for example, polyester in which a sulfenate group or a carboxylate group has been introduced, and has a surface coated, for example, with anatase type titanium oxide makes microbes such as bacteria and viruses harmless by adsorbing these microbes and has sufficient air permeability, therefore being usable as a filter, a mask or the like. Furthermore, a sheet made of a fabric or paper which is impregnated with an aqueous solution of polyvinyl alcohol copolymerized with a monomer having a sulfonate group or carboxylate group as a fabric size and on which titanium oxide is coated and fixed has a function to make harmful microbes harmless by adsorbing these microbes, therefore being usable not only as a filter or a mask but also as fruit packing material or the like.
