UV protection and self-cleaning finish for cotton fabric using metal oxide nanoparticles

  title={UV protection and self-cleaning finish for cotton fabric using metal oxide nanoparticles},
  author={And Sivakumar and R. Murugan and K. Sundaresan and Siddhan Periyasamy},
Ultra-violet protection and self-cleaning action of nano zinc oxide (ZnO) and titaniu m di-oxide (TiO2) with acrylic binder has been assessed on the cotton fabric using pad-dry-cure method. Different precursors, such as zinc acetate and titanium tetrachloride have been used to synthesize nanoparticles. Zinc acetate is synthesized into nanoparticle by wet chemical technique and titanium tetrachloride is synthesized into nanoparticle by sol-gel technique. The synthesized nanoparticles are then… Expand
