|Abstract:||Benzalkonium chloride (BKC)and cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), the two bactericidal cationic surfactants of the quaternary ammonium group, have been found to impart high rot and mildew resistance to bleached jute without affecting its aesthetic appeal. Unlike cotton, BKC- or CTAB-treated jute retains considerable microbial resistance on leaching. This difference with cotton is due to the higher absorption capacity of jute which is further enhanced on bleaching.|
