A new route to make cotton fabric self-cleaning and permanently stiff by coating cellulose-TiO2 on its surface is demonstrated herein. Cellulose-TiO2 dispersion was used for coating and was prepared by mixing TiO2 nanoparticles with cellulose in 60% H2SO4 solution. The surface morphology of cellulose-TiO2 nanoparticles coated sample was analyzed by SEM. The… CONTINUE READING
