Advanced oxidation can be defined as a process in which the oxidative capacity of a parent compound is modified to make oxidation- reduction reactions more rapid and complete by generating hydroxyl radicals. What is AOP?
Major types of AOPs H 2 O 2 UV Process Fenton Process Ozonation UV/ H 2 O 2 O 3 /H 2 O 2 O 3 /UV O 3 /H 2 O 2 /UV Photocatalysis
AOP Based Cotton Bleaching Green solution….
Conventional Bleaching Consumption of high energy Longer treatment time Extensive use of chemicals like surfactants, stabilizers, peroxide killers etc. Highly alkaline effluent requires neutralization. High environmental loads resulting from waste water Storage problems Treatment and disposal cost
processing at low temperature No by products & reduces effluent load Less acid is required for neutralization Shorter treatment times No use of chemicals Less energy consumption Higher oxidation potential Benefits of AOP Bleaching
Objectives To develop an AOP based cost-effective and efficient technology for the bleaching of cotton fabrics. To optimize the process by studying various parameters such as pH, time, temperature etc. To evaluate the impact of AOPs on the quality of bleached fabrics. To make a comparison between the conventional and AOP based bleaching of cotton.
Quality of Bleached Fabric The quality of fabric is assessed by: Whiteness Absorbency Dye uptake Bursting Strength Degree of Polymerization Extent of Chemical Modification in terms of Copper number
Materials and Methods 100% cotton, single jersey, knitted fabric having 180 gsm (grams per squared meter) was used. The bleached samples were measured for whiteness index using spectrophotometer SF 500 by data color. The color difference (∆E) values of the dyed samples were determined using the 1976 CIE L*, a* and b* (CIELAB) equation. The fluidity of cotton fabric was measured according to AATCC test method The fehling test was used to assess the chemical damage to cellulose

Conclusion The present report reveals that the grey cotton fabric can be bleached using AOPs to achieve the desired degree of whiteness with minimum damage to cellulose in a short time period. The AOP bleaching has several advantages including elimination of scouring processes, savings in energy and chemicals, and no effluent loading.
Future Study We intend to extend these processes to bleach surgical cotton for future research.
