Antibacterial property, herbal extract, biopolymer extract, nanocapsules.



The healthcare and sanitation textiles are gaining additional importance for the eco-friendly and valuable antibacterial activity that have become vital to safegaurd human beings from harmful microorganisms. Most of the antibacterial agents available in the market for the application of textiles are synthetic-based and may not be environmentally friendly. Among the improvement of textile with Antibacterial finish it is greatly essential and appropriate since garments are in direct contact with human body. The present investigation is to develop a fabric with antibacterial property using Terminalia chebula herb and Chitosan biopolymer extracts. Antibacterial property has been imparted to bamboo cotton blended fabric using nanoencapsules by exhaust method. The antibacterial activity was assesed using Agar Diffusion Method against Gram Positive organism (Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram Negative organism (Escherichia coli). The samples were imparted with herb and biopolymer nanocapsules which showed best results for antibacterial activity against microbes even after 30 washes. The finished sample was analyzed for its morphology using FESEM and FT-IR.
