The extent of DVB grafting onto cellulose fabric increases with total gamma radiation dose up to 10–15 kGy while it decreases with the radiation dose rate. A quantitative analysis of DVB grafting has been attempted by means of IR spectroscopy using the baseline method. Characteristic bands were selected in the spectra of copolymers, namely, the cellulose band at 1160 cm−1 and DVB band at 798 cm−1. The former band decreased and the latter increased with the degree of copolymerization, and the values were in accordance with the calibration straight line. An attempt to graft DVB onto cotton fabric previously grafted with styrene showed greater extent of copolymerization than with pure fabric.
