Characterization of Fibrous Assembly from Lime Peel Extract

Full Text PDF


The present research focuses on the development of anti-oxidant and antimicrobial polymeric fibrous material based on lime peel extract which contains many bioactive compounds having medicinal and healthcare properties. The aim of the present research is to generate fibrous assembly from lime peel extract and characterize the newly developed fibrous assembly in terms of chemical group identification, burning behavior, solubility behavior, thermal behavior, moisture absorbency and microscopic behavior. The antibacterial activity is also studied for possible application in the suitable area of medical textiles. The fibrous assembly primarily composed of about lignin, cellulose, hemicelluloses and different polyphenolic compounds such as flavonoid, shows excellent moisture absorbency and antimicrobial property against E. coli and S. aureus strains. The fibrous assembly has potential for applications in the wound dressing and healthcare sector.
