The kinetic data (rate constant, Arrhenius activation energy, frequency factor) of the hydrolysis reaction of the anhydride moiety of (3-triethoxysilylpropyl)succinic acid anhydride (TESP-SA) were investigated by means of FT-IR monitoring the decrease of the carbonyl stretching band at 1778 cm−1. The reaction had been conducted in an excess of water under acidic conditions (pseudo-first order reaction). In addition, the application of TESP-SA to cotton fabrics in conjunction with sodium hypophosphite as curing catalyst at elevated temperature (180 °C, 90 s) was tested. The dry crease recovery angle proved that no crosslinking reaction of the cellulose chains could be observed.
