Determination of Anti-bacterial Effect, Anti- odour Effect, uv- protection Factor and XRD on Formic Acid Treated Modal and Cotton Fabric

Modal is created from the spun regenerated cellulose polymer of beech trees and is bio-based rather than natural. Modal is a second-generation regenerated cellulosic fibre and a rayon variation. They’re tough and long-lasting, but soft and velvety to the touch. Modal materials have a nice drape and don’t pile as much as cotton fabrics. Modal materials resist fading, shrinkage, and the buildup of hard water mineral deposits even after multiple washings. In this experiment, modal textiles (woven and knitted) are chosen and traditionally prepared before being exposed to various concentrations of 98 percent formic acid, which is employed in the bioprocess of cellulose polymeric materials. After that, the formic acid-treated modal fabrics were put through a battery of tests, including anti-bacterial, anti-odor, anti-odor retention, UV protection factor, and XRD. These treatments were compared to cotton to see how successful they were on modal materials.
