People look for clothes that smell good, and remain fresh for a longer time, thereby boosting their confidence. They expect specialized finishes that control body odor and remain fresh for a longer time.

They are applied in textiles through exhaust, pad-dry-cure, spray, coating, and foam techniques. They can also be added directly into the fibre spinning dope.

Cyclodextrin is produced from starch through enzymatic conversion. It posses a cylindrical structure which acts like a host and can absorb guest molecules inside the structure and release them later on.

The hydrophobic cavity present in cyclodextrin molecules can react as odor impeding property in textiles.

Antimicrobial finishing in fabrics have potential applications in manufacturing uniforms, tents, defense textiles and geo textiles.
