The antifungal activity from cotton fabric textile was studied by using TiO2-SiO2/Chitosan, with CTABr (Cetyl Trimetyl Ammonium Bromide) template as nano particle suspension disperser in the surface of cotton fabric textile. The difference of dip-spin coating time was correlated by the perfection of TiO2-SiO2/Chitosan coating and indicated by the gain of textile mass, stable to the washing and the ability of textile to inhibit the Aspergilus niger growth. Result showed that in the 24 h and 90 min of dip-spin coating, there was 14 mm of A. niger inhibition zone, compared with cotton fabric textile without treatment and was larger inhibition zone than cotton fabric textile treated by ketokonazol as a positive control. The chemical change occurred in the textile fiber after TiO2- SiO2/Chitosan coating was analyzed by FT-IR and SEM-EDX.
