Mill scoured and bleached cotton fabric, alkali treated cotton and partially carboxymethylated cottons having 34, 50 and 68 milliequivalent/100 g cellulose were subjected to thermal treatments. The latter were carried out at different temperatures for different durations of time. Chemical degradation of the substrates brought about by thermal treatment was assessed by copper number, carboxylic groups and degree of polymerization whereas deterioration was measured by tensile strength and… CONTINUE READING
