    ABSTRACT: Color mothball is a daily necessity in Southeast Asia. Mothball contained nearly 100% naphthalene or 100% p-dichlorobenzene. It was used to resist insects, mothproof and mildew with a special odor. In other words, the odor was thought unpleasant enough to drive animals away in repellent products. This research analyzed color mothball which was manufactured by C and N companies. The mothball was dyed with eight dyes and three essences of fragrance, respectively. The experiment of color fastness with UV-light test is to determine how much the color will fade, when it exposed to a known ultraviolet light source. In the last analysis, the experimental data from the spectrum of GC/MS described all kinds of structure on color mothball after 80 hours phototherapy treatment as shown in the content. This research reveals that color mothball can have better appearance and greater performance, to meet the requirements for customs and various applications.
