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 ...
Selective enzymatic modification of wool/polyester blended fabrics for surface patterning
An enzyme-based process was investigated to achieve surface patterning of fabrics as an alternative to conventional chemical processes. In the current study, the enzyme protease was employed to selectively modify a ...
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. ...
