Electro-osmotic investigations of cotton cellulose, cellulose esters,
and their dyeings.
"Electro-osmotic investigation indicates that raw, mercerized, bleached,
and doubly-bleached cotton carries negative charges, the size of which
decreases with the degree of bleaching. Cellulose acetate and benzoate


carry a much smaller negative charge, while the amino-benzoate is posi-
tively charged. The nature of the charge in mordanted cotton varies
with the individual electrolytes. In the case of cotton, dyeing with
Congo Red and Crystal Ponceau diminishes the charge considerably, while
of the basic dyes, Methylene Blue decreases the charge, and Safranine
and Chrysoidine increase it somewhat. The influence of dyestuffs on the
nature of the charges in the various cellulose esters has also been in-
vestigated. The charge in cellulosic fibers appears to depend upon the
number of secondary valencies, but theories other than the mutual effect
of oppositely-charged colloids must be found to account for the altera-
tions in the charge which result on dyeing." Molliand Textile Monthly

Causes and removal of static charges on fibers.
"The occurrence of electrostatic charges on fibrous materials and their
disturbing effects in textile processes are discussed, and various methods
and devices for removing or neutralising the charges are briefly described.
Experiments with combed sliver have shown that charges arise when the
sliver is drawn out without contact with metal or other materials... A
device for measuring charges on yarns on spinning frames is also described
and the results of measurements on wool, cellulose acetate staple fibre,
Cuprama, and mixture yarns on a worsted spinning machine and on Vistra
CWW, Egyptian cotton, Zehlawo staple fibre, and Flex yarns on a cotton
spinning machine at 50 per cent. R. H. and different spindle speeds are
shown graphically and discussed... On the cotton ring spinning machine the
Vistra CWW yarn acquired a considerably higher charge than the cotton and
other yarns. The charge on the Flex yarn was lower than that on the cotton
yarn and it has been found that smooth regular flex yarns can be obtained
by spinning in a room at 50-55 per cent. R. H.-C." Textile Inst. Jour.

"The method of determining the electrical conductance of textile fibres
is described. The electrical conductance of cellulose artificial silks
is generally greater than that of natural silk, whilst that of cellulose
acetate silk is much less than that of other artificial silks."

"Evidence will be presented in this paper to show that the improvement
in d.-c. insulation resistance of cotton, secured by washing, is ac-
companied by a reduction in the inorganic ash content from about 1% of the
dry cotton weight to a value general. less than 0.3 per cent."
Cotton has been given primary consideration "since it is the most
economical material available for use in telephone apparatus insulation,
and the improvements in electrical properties secured by water washing
have led to its substitution for silk to a large extent in the telephone
