Preparation and Characteristics of Eco-Friendly Essential Oils and its Utilization for Finishing Cotton Fabrics

M. M. El-Molla [3] | A. H. El-Ghorab | K. F. El-Massry

Abstract: The present research concerns preparation and extraction of ecofriendly essential oils from natural sources and utilization for finishing bleached cotton fabrics. Lavender, thyme, and clove essential oils are extracted from natural sources and used in treatment of cotton fabrics, in order to give it a good smell and antibacterial characteristics, i. e. medical textile. The recent academic research shows that, aroma-enhanced textiles are being developed in the areas of sustainability environmental consciousness, health and well- being, and enhanced brand awareness. We developed medical textiles using the essential oils (lavender, thyme, and clove) with -cyclodextrin inclusion compounds. -cyclodextrin molecules are capable of forming inclusion compounds with essential oils that fit into the cone-shaped hydrophobic cavity. The fragrance inclusion compounds are fixed onto cotton by dry with a low temperature and then thermo fixed method. The essential oils were studied to prove its structure using various techniques such as IR spectra, GC-MS, the scanning electron microscopy (SEM). etc. Moreover, the antibacterial activity of treated cotton fabrics with, lavender, thyme, and clove against, Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli was evaluated. The results show that the treated cotton fabrics with essential oils have antibacterial properties.
