Hemalalitha. S. N, Dr. N. Vasugi Raaja

Abstract :

 Bamboo is a soft absorbent material used extensively these days for many applications particularly in health care sector. Bamboo nonwoven finished with natural plant bio active agent enhances its antimicrobial feature and plays an excellent role in anti bacterial study. The present study was focused on extraction of Aloevera, Aerva lanata, Tectona grandis, Teatree and Rosmarinus officinalis plant bioactive agents using ethanol as solvent in soxhlet apparatus followed by optimizing the plant extract at different concentrations of 1%, 3%, 5% and 7%. Along with it the primary phytoconstituents were screened for the above plants.  The various concentrate of the plant extract solutions were then finished on bamboo nonwoven spunlace faic by loading method. The finished samples were evaluated for the anti bacterial assessment AATCC 90–2011 against gram positive and gram negative pathogens for its performance as antibacterial faic that can be used in healthcare and hygiene textiles.
