Graphical Abstract: 
This article offers an overview of some contemporary antimicrobial (biocides and biostatics) agents used as functional finishing for textiles intended for biomedical applications. It reviews only synthetic agents, namely quaternary ammonium compounds, halogenated phenols, polybiguanides, N-halamines, and renewable peroxides, as a part of an extensive study currently in progress.
