Embedding aromatherapy essential oils into textile fabric using β-Cyclodextrin inclusion compound

  title={Embedding aromatherapy essential oils into textile fabric using $\beta$-Cyclodextrin inclusion compound},
  author={Subhas Ghosh and Natalie Chipot},
β- Cyclodextrin inclusion compounds have been attached to the 100% cotton and 50:50 cotton/polyester fabrics using sol-gel, prepared from 3-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane and tetraethoxy orthosilicate. Aromatherapy essential oils, having eucalyptus, lavender and lemon fragrances, have been applied on to the treated fabrics by a selected application method. The durability of these fragrances on fabrics has been rated by four judges for six weeks, and up to six washings. The judges rated the…
