Abstract:

Research was carried out on the oxidation of cellulose by ozone treatment. It is considered as environment friendly in comparison with the existing oxidation methods used in industry for a long time. This treatment is used in different applications such as the scouring / bleaching of cotton fabrics and in improving the properties of Kraft pulp cellulose in the paper industry. In this study, the effect of Ozone treatment on cotton yarn properties was investigated. This investigation can help in obtaining the maximum crystalline percentage of cotton for the production of nano-crystalline cellulose. Two-ply cotton ring spun yarn was treated with ozone gas for different time periods. Yarn tensile properties, wickability, the copper number and physical appearance were observed. It is evident that yarn tensile properties deteriorate drastically after a certain time, while the wickability and copper number increase simultaneously.
