    Abstract

    Cotton was treated with β-cyclodextrin via a crosslinker 1, 2, 3, 4, butane tetracarboxylic acid. β-cyclodextrin attached cotton and plain cotton was treated with the antimicrobial agent Chlorhexidine acetate. The difference in amount of Chlorhexidine acetate loaded onto the two types of fabrics for same application concentrations was noted. These two types of fabrics were then tested for antibacterial performance. The antibacterial activity was tested according to the JIS L 1902 standard using the ATCC 11229 E.coli bacteria. Antibacterial tests indicated slow release of Chlorhexidine acetate (CHXA) from β-cyclodextrins attached cotton in comparison with the rapid release of CHXA from plain cotton. This property of slow release in the former has applications wound dressings.
