|Title:||A Model for the Crosslinked Cotton Fibre|
|Authors:||Manjunath, B R|
|Abstract:||The loss in tensile properties of cotton fibre subsequent to crosslinking has been shown to be due to rigidification of the fibrc structure resulting in embrittlement and not to the degradation of the polymer by acid liberated or present during the reaction. as believed by some workers. This rigidification of the structure can be achieved by fusing the neighbouring fibrils either by covalent linkages or by simple hydrogen bonding. A simple model has been proposed for the crosslinked fibre based on the helical structure of the cotton fibre. The predicted losses in tensile properties, based on this model, will be greater for G. herbaceum type than for G. barbadense type cottons.|
