Abstract:

In the research work presented, fabric made of wool was grafted with β-cyclodextrine (β-CD) using 1, 2, 3, 4 butanetetracarboxlic acid (BTCA) as a polyfunctional reagent. To reduce the grafting curing temperature, which could damage the wool fabric if too high, cyanamide (CA) in combination with ammonium dihydrogen phosphat (ADHP) were used as catalysts. The presence of cedar oil applied onto textile materials was determined by ATR FT-IR spectroscopy, as well as estimation of the add-on of cedar oil with the gravimetric approach, respectively. Finally the reduction in moths after being exposed to wool treated with a separate treatment formulation i.e. β-CD, cedar oil, and β-CD in combination with cedar oil was assessed visually after different time periods. Results showed that the wool after being treated with β-CD in combination with cedar oil shows significantly prolonged moth oppression activity compared to the wool treated with cedar oil only.
