Chitosan-Templated Bio-coloration of Cotton Fabrics via Laccase-Catalyzed Polymerization of Hydroquinone
There is an increasing interest in the development of enzymatic coloration of textile fabrics as an alternative to conventional textile dyeing processes, which is successful for dyeing protein fibers. However, unmodified ...
Enzymatic thiol-ene click reaction: an eco-friendly approach for MPEGMA-grafted modification of wool fibers
The thiol–ene click reaction has been commonly used for the modification of many materials due to its high efficiency, high selectivity, and reliability. To further promote the sustainable technology for the modification ...
Dimensional change of wool fabrics in the process of a tumble-drying cycle
Currently domestic tumble dryers are popularly used for drying garments; however, excessive drying and the inappropriate way of tumble agitation could waste energy and cause damage to or the dimensional change of garments. ...
Laccase-catalyzed polymerization of hydroquinone incorporated with chitosan oligosaccharide for enzymatic coloration of cotton
Chitosan oligosaccharide (COS), a water-soluble carbohydrate obtained from chemical or enzymatic hydrolysis of chitosan, has similar structure and properties to non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable chitosan. However, ...
