Structure and organization of cotton cellulose investigated by x-ray diffraction and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy
The structure and organization of cellulose in developing cotton fibers from TX55 and TM-1 cultivars at varying developmental stages from 10 to 56 days post anthesis (DPA) were investigated using Wide angle X-ray Diffraction ...
Parameters affecting dye-uptake of cotton fibers
Cotton fibers develop a negative charge when immersed in water. Reactive dyes, which are most commonly used to dye cotton fibers, are also negatively charged in solution. The negative charge developed on the fiber surface ...
Investigating the impact of drought stress on cotton fiber properties
Drought is a major environment stress that reduces cotton yield and fiber quality in the State of Texas. However, because of the inherent difficulties of studying fiber tissue and the lack of markers to monitor the fiber ...
Organic-inorganic hybrid aerogels
A strong and porous photoactive material with a large reactive surface area could have use as a photocatalyst or as a semiconductor. Crystalline titania dioxide (TiO2) is known to have photoactive properties, but pure ...
Impacts of Improved Bean Varietal Adoption on Income and Food Consumption in Uganda
ABSTRACT Common beans contribute to the livelihoods of many farmers’ households in Uganda. Adoption of improved beans is aimed at improving productivity, profitability, and consumption in order to reduce food insecurity. ...
