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 ...
Laccase-catalyzed in-situ dyeing of wool fabric
(Taylor and Francis, 2015-08-18)
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
