Study on Aroma Finish Using Vanillin on Cotton Based Home Textiles
MetadataShow full item record
Abstract: The paper is aimed at the application of aroma finish to cotton based home décor textiles for the stimulation of emotive feelings for value enhancement of home textiles. Beta-Cyclodextrin is used as a host to form inclusion complexes with vanillin working as a guest that is incorporated in the cavities of beta- cyclodextrin, thereby curtailing the aroma release from the treated substrates. The performance of chitosan as well as citric acid had been explored as the potential binder/ cross linking bridge between beta-cyclodextrin and the cotton fabric for imparting aroma to the textiles. Also, the impact of fragrance finishing on cotton properties has been investigated. The chitosan based aroma finishing was found to be a more effective than citric acid for the aroma retention in terms of retention of vanillin and physical properties of treated cotton.
