Development of Durable Shrink-resist Coating of Wool with Sol-gel Polymer Processing
Knitted wool fabric was pre-treated with the serine type protease, Esperase 8.0L (EC188.8.131.52), and sodium sulphite followed by an immersion treatment with a sol-gel hybrid polymer. To enhance the durability of the sol-gel ...
Enzymatic coloration and finishing of wool with laccase and polyethylenimine
Enzymes have been widely used in the textile wet processing. The precise reaction specificity of an enzyme has been utilised for specific or targeted textile finishing without causing undesirable fibre damage. Laccases are ...
Laccase-catalyzed polymerization of diaminobenzenesulfonic acid for pH-responsive colour-changing and conductive wool fabrics
In recent years, there has been an extensive interest in the research of smart fabrics and functional textiles. The present work has successfully developed the enzymatic approach for dyed wool fabrics in possession of ...
