In this study, in order to investigate the presence of the triclosan on the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fibers after finishing treatments, both triclosan and its derivate solutions were prepared and the presence of triclosan was found at retention time of 12.04-12.18 min. by GC-MS. SEM results showed that fiber surface became very smooth and -1 bright after coating and the vibrational bands in the region of 722 and 570 cm implied the presence of triclosan on fiber surface by FTIR studies.
