Abstract: The moisture sorption characteristics of jute crosslinked with dimethyloldihydroxyethylene urea (DMDHEU) using metal salt catalysts (MgCl2 and ZnCl2) and acid catalyst (acetic acid) by the pad dry-cure method have been assessed. Crosslinking treatment reduces the hygroscopicity of jute fibre at any level of relative humidity. The concentrations of DMDHEU (4-12%) and catalyst and the curing conditions (2-10 min) also affect the moisture sorption characteristics of crosslinked jute. Preswelling treatment with sodium hydroxide (16.5% w/w) prior to crosslinking further reduces the hygroscopicity of jute fibre.
