Technical Abstract: In this poster, we will discuss the interactions of end group modified poly(ethylene oxide), PEO and poly(propylene oxide), PPO polymers with cotton print cloth. In addition, we will examine the thermal and mechanical properties of these treated cotton fabrics to develop a formulation that improves tensile and tear strengths of plain weave cotton print cloth.
