The spectrophotometric method developed by Finley for the determination of poly(vinyl alcohol) in paper coatings has been adapted for analysis of cotton fabrics crosslinked with finishes containing a poly(vinyl alcohol) additive. The effect of time and pH of hydrolysis on the analysis, and the dependency of the durability of the poly(vinyl alcohol) on the crosslinking agent are established. Evidence of chemical attachment to the cellulose of the cotton fiber through the crosslinking agent is offered.
