Cotton weather in the form of fiber or fabric, a natural cellulose material, is widely used in the textile industry for its excellent properties. However, its application in some fields is seriously restricted because of its poor ant pilling behavior, antibacterial and UV-protection, comfortably, tensile properties, softness properties, water repellence and wrinkle recovery, hydrophobic property, wicking properties and dye ability of cotton fabrics and to use it as nano particle. That is why the surface and chemical modification carried out through different methodology with chemicals used were of analytical reagent grade to achieve such important property of the cotton materials like super hydrophobic, good surface property of a cotton when it treat with weather plasma, nanoparticles coating, composite film and chemical treatments (3-glycidoxypropyltriethoxysilane,bifunctional polysiloxanes, silane coupling agents vinyltriethoxysilane and aminopropyltriethoxysilane, chloropyrimidine compounds. All modification enhances the application of cotton material in different sectors.
