This paper would like to compare the ability of two cellulosic polymers to bind nano titania to polyester fabrics, in order to provide the fabric a self-cleaning property. The fixation of the nano titania on the polyester fabric was explored using Cyclodextrin or Xanthan gum. The photocatalytic activity of TiO2 nanoparticles deposited on the polyester fabric was followed by the degradation of methylene blue as a model of an organic stain on the polyester fabric surface. The XRD patterns and SEM photographs of polyester fabric coated with nano titania were recorded. The different factors affecting the self-cleaning property as well as the fixation of nano titania was investigated.
