ABSTRACT

In this study, cotton fibers were coated with a different weight percentage of octadecyl dimethyl(3-triethoxy silylpropyl) ammonium chloride(ODDMAC) to improve antimicrobial and water repellent properties. First, the ODDMAC dissolved in ethanol to prepare a solution. Then the cotton fibers were immersed in the ODDMAC/ethanol solution for 10 minutes at ambient temperature and dried at 80°C for 3 minutes followed by curing. The treated cotton fibers were characterized by scanning electron microscopy(SEM) and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy(XPS). The treated cotton fibers revealed sufficient antimicrobial activity against Klebsiella pneumoniae(ATCC 4352) and Staphylococcus aureus( ATCCBAA-1707). The hydrophobic nature of the treated cotton fibers was characterized by contact angle measurement. The results showed that the cotton fibers treated with the ODDMAC showed excellent hydrophobic properties which improved to 121°.
