Abstract

Influence of Electron Irradiation on Tassr Non-mulberry Silk Fibers

In this work the effect of electron irradiation on the structural, chemical and thermal properties of tassar non-mulberry silk fibers was investigated. Tassar silk fiber (Antheraea mylitta) samples were irradiated in air at room temperature using 8 MeV electron beam in the range 0 to 100 kGy. Various properties of the irradiated fibers were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The wide angle X-ray scattering (WAXS) study shows the crystallite size (L) increases with increasing radiation dosage. It was found that the thermal stability of the fibers improved after electron irradiation.
