UV protection finishing of textiles using ZnO nanoparticles

  title={UV protection finishing of textiles using ZnO nanoparticles},
  author={S. Kathirvelu and Louis D'Souza and Bhaarathi Dhurai},
The synthesis and characterization of nanosized zinc oxide particles and their application on cotton and polyester/cotton fabrics have been studied for the protection against UV radiation. The nanoparticles are produced in different conditions of temperature (90° or 150°C) and reaction medium (water or 1,2-ethanediol). Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray powder diffractometry have been used to characterize the nanoparticles composition as well as… Expand
