Ray Diffractometric Study of the Effects of Laundering on the Microcrystallite Size of Naturally Colored Cotton
- Hsiou-Lien Chen (Oregon State University)
The unique characteristic of color darkening after laundering of naturally colored cottons could be due to either fibers' chemical or physical properties or both. Characterization of the physical microstructure will provide a partial understanding of the origins of the special properties of naturally colored cottons. The purpose of this research is to study how the crystallite sizes of naturally colored cottons are affected by repeated laundering.
