Abstract

The application method of essential oils and plant extracts in micro/nanocapsules on textiles can affect the properties of the fabric due to evaporation. This paper presents a comparative study on different applications of encapsulated herbal products on cotton fabric. UV curing of nanocapsules and simultaneous encapsulation/stabilization were used to prepare a controllable release essential oils on cotton fabric. FESEM images indicated well stabilized nanocapsules on the cotton fabric in both methods. FT-IR and UV–Vis analysis confirmed the presence of the encapsulated peppermint oil on the cotton fabric. There was longer controlled release and increased stiffness found in the samples prepared with UV curing, while there was lower weight and thickness, improved water retention, and ameliorated water absorbency in the sample produced with simultaneous encapsulation/stabilization. Further, better durability and prolonged release of antimicrobial, fragrance, and insect repellent agents can be obtained by UV curing method of the textiles, while the simultaneous encapsulation/stabilization method is more suitable for disposable applications such as wound dressings or medical textiles.
