Abstract
Super-hydrophobic and super-oleophilic Textile oil-water separator was successfully prepared by a coating of modified silane solution on the textile cloth surface by a spray coating method. To prepare superhydrophobic cotton oil water separator, raw cotton cloth was treated with detergent, cleaned with water, and dried in air. The formation of an oil-water separator by modified silane solution for superhydrophobicity was confirmed by dropping on the surface of modified cotton with a colour solution and investigated the wetting behavior and absorption capacity of probing liquids on the superhydrophobic cotton by the water contact angle. The silane coated cotton showed higher water repellent activity and higher absorption capacity of oil than raw cotton with 146.2◦C of water contact angle and absorption capacity of two kinds of probing liquids were greater than raw cotton fabric.
