Flame-retardant and crease-proofing finishing of cotton fabrics via in-situ copolymerization of ethylene phytic acid and itaconic acid, part I: Fabrication process

Ethylene phytic acid (PA) and unsaturated itaconic acid (IA) could be copolymerized in-situ and cross-linked on the cotton fabrics to enhance flame-retardant and crease-proofing properties. Natural phytic acid was modified with glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) and characterized by IR ,1HNMR and TG. The IR Indicated that new characteristic absorption peaks appear near 1720, 1470, 1380, and 1002 cm-1 for the molar ratios PA: GMA of 1:3 or 1:6, the peaks correspond to the bending vibration of C=O, C-H, CH3, and C=O-O respectively in the GMA. The 1HNMR results further confirmed the reaction between GMA and PA, and the TG results revealed the thermal properties of PA .
