Influence of structural changes induced by oxidation and addition of silver ions on electrical properties of cotton yarn
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is focused on investigating the electrical behavior of cotton yarn oxidized with nonselective oxidation agent, hydrogen peroxide, through measurement of structural changes in cotton, and elucidating the influence of these changes on electrical resistance. Significant connection between the nature of the introduced polar groups, crystallinity index, water retention ability, silver sorption and electrical resistance was found. The measurement and possible control of electrical resistance could help anticipate and control the textile materials' tendency to generate static electricity, since these two parameters are closely connected and mutually dependent.
