Disulfide bond reconstruction: A novel approach for grafting of thiolated chitosan onto wool
Chitosan, a natural biopolymer, is used as a multifunctional agent for modification of wool either through chemical crosslinking or physical coating. For the first time, wool fabric has been modified with chitosan through ...
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 ...
