Cotton and Nylon

Cotton and Nylon

Why is Cotton more absorbent than Nylon?

The answer lies in the basic but remarkable molecular structure of cotton, nylon and water. The simple water molecule, with its one oxygen atom attached to two hydrogen atoms, causes a different action when it comes in conta­ct with the complex molecules that make up cotton and nylon.

Water has a sticky quality that comes from its molecular structure. The oxygen atom attracts electrons, giving it a slightly negative charge. The two hydrogen atoms have a slightly positive charge. The positive and negative ends make the water molecule like a magnet (dipole), which keeps water molecules together and makes the surface of a water drop slightly elastic. It also means that water molecules will bond easily with molecules with an opposite charge that come nearby.

Polymer molecules are often long chains of atoms linked in repeating patterns. There are a lot of atoms bonded to one another in these molecules, giving a lot of places where sticky water molecules can find a place to bond.

Cotton is pure cellulose, a naturally occurring polymer. Cellulose is a  carbohydrate, and the molecule is a long chain of glucose (sugar) molecules. If you look at the structure of a cellulose molecule you can see the OH groups that are on the outer edge. These negatively charged groups attract water molecules and make cellulose and cotton absorb water well. Cotton can absorb about 25 times its weight in water. Chemists refer to substances like cotton as hydrophilic, which means that they attract water molecules.

Nylon is a synthetic material, meaning that chemists create the polymer molecules that make up nylon. More than 100 repeating units of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen atoms make up the long chain nylon molecule. The strength of the long nylon molecule made it a great replacement for silk, which had a similar feel and texture.

Cotton and Nylon are both made up of giant polymer molecules, these fibers are used in Grupo Denim for many garments for their quality  and durability said Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

  30. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due
    to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  31. What’s up, yes this piece of writing is in fact pleasant and I have learned lot of things from it regarding blogging.
    thanks.

  32. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  33. Hello There. I discovered your weblog the usage of msn. This is a really smartly written article.

    Appreciate it

  35. Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a
    lot!

  36. Its like you learn my mind! You seem to grasp so
    much approximately this, like you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I believe that you can do with some percent to pressure the message
