Enzyme-catalysed synthesis of polymeric colorants for wool coloration and surface patterning
(2019 International conference on Eco-Textiles (ICET 2019) and Young Scholar Forum, 2019-08-04)
There is considerable interest for improving the sustainability of textile preparation, coloration and functional finishing. An enzyme-based eco-friendly approach not only has the potential advantage in saving time and ...
Enzyme biotechnology for textile coloration and surface patterning
(2019 International Symposium on Advanced Textile Science and Engineering, 2019-07-09)
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. ...
Development of a bioprocess combined with membrane technology for the treatment and recycling of textile effluent.

The influence of mechanical action on felting shrinkage of wool fabric in the tumble dryer
Felting shrinkage of untreated wool fabric occurs easily during tumble drying. Mechanical action applied on fabrics plays a significant part in felting shrinkage of wool fabric. In general, the more severe the mechanical ...
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, ...
Innovative Technologies for Sustainable Textile Coloration, Patterning, and Surface Effects
The environmental impact of textile dyeing and finishing is of paramount concern in the textile industry. Enzyme and laser processing technologies present attractive alternatives to conventional textile coloration and ...
The influence of moisture content on shrinkage of wool fabrics during domestic tumble drying process
Shrinkage of wool fabrics caused during tumble drying is a serious defect. In the drying process, the felting shrinkage of wool fabrics was influenced by the moisture content and temperature of wool fabric as well as ...
Laccase-catalysed coloration of wool and nylon
The potential for laccase (EC 220.127.116.11) to be used within the area of textile coloration, specifically for the generation of decorative surface pattern design, remains relatively unexplored. The current study presents a ...
