Enhancing Dye Adsorption of Wool Fibers With 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium Chloride Ionic Liquid Processing

  title={Enhancing Dye Adsorption of Wool Fibers With 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium Chloride Ionic Liquid Processing},
  author={Jiugang Yuan and Qiang Wang and Xuerong Fan and Ping Wang},
  journal={Textile Research Journal},
In this paper, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ionic liquid (IL) which has good solubility for wool keratin, was employed to treat the wool fibers. The characterization of IL treatment on the wool fibers was first investigated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), the Allworden reaction and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. Then, the effect of the IL treatment on the wool adsorption properties for an acid dye was studied through the dyeing rate test. The IL treatment was proven to be… 

Improvement of the Dyeability and Salt-Free Dyeing for Wool Fabrics with Anionic Dyes by Pretreatment with Whey and Soybean Proteins

ABSTRACT Wool fabrics were pretreated with whey protein concentrate (WPC) and soybean flour (SPF) proteins individually to improve their dyeability toward anionic dyes as acid orange 10 (AO10) and

Influence of acetated‐based and bromo‐based ionic liquids treatment on wool dyeing with acid blue 7

Bromo-based and acetated-based ionic liquids (ILs), 1-butyle-3-methylimidazolium bromo ([Bmim]Br), 1-ethyl-3-mthylimidazolium bromo ([Emim]Br), 1-butyle-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([Bmim]Ac), and

Effects of Oxygen Plasma Treatment on the Physical and Chemical Properties of Wool Fiber Surface

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of oxygen plasma treatment on the surface roughness, morphology, chemical surface structure, crystallinity and tensile properties of wool fiber yarn.


Because of the limitations of traditional dyeing technologies, large amounts of water and chemical additives are used in the dyeing processes, resulting in enormous quantities of polluted wastewater,

Enhancing Dyeing of Wool Fabrics with Natural Kamala Dye via Bio-Treatment with Safflower Extract

In this work an attempt has been made to optimize the process of dyeing wool fabric with Kamala natural dye, firstly by enhancing the colour strength obtained via treating wool with Safflower enzyme

Can Thiourea Dioxide Regenerate Keratin from Waste Wool?

ABSTRACT Wool is a natural biopolymer with excellent biocompatibility. This dense structure makes it difficult to recycle the millions of wool textiles discarded annually. This study reports, for the

Application of Crab Shell Chitosan on Nonwoven Wool

Textile substrates can be coated with suitable polymer solutions to enhance the surface functionality. This paper highlights the deposition of chitosan (CHT) on wool nonwoven substrates using

Application of nanotechnology for wool and wool blends in medical textiles utilising biopolymers

The object of this research was to explore ways to utilise wool in medical textiles particularly in wound-dressing materials. Wool was chosen for this study as it possesses the highest moisture



Effect of protease treatment on dyeing properties of wool fabrics for single bath

During the conventional process of dyeing for wool fabric, the most important problem is the damage to wool fiber and energy waste because of high temperature. In this paper, the effect of a

Dyeing Properties of Wool Fabrics Treated with Atmospheric Pressure Plasmas

The dyeing properties of wool treated with atmospheric pressure plasma are investigated in terms of exhaustion with dyeing time, absorption isotherm and Ct/C∞ versus t1/2 curves, dyeing rate

Graft copolymerization of benzyl methacrylate onto wool fibers

Benzyl methacrylate (BzMA) was graft copolymerized onto wool fibers by using ammonium peroxydisulphate as the initiator. Grafted samples with different polymer add ons ( from 7 to 180%) were obtained

DCCA Shrinkproofing of Wool

Dichlorodicyanuric acid (DCCA) is one of the oldest chlorination reagents for imparting shrinkage resistance to wool. It is commonly used in the Hercosett® shrink-proof process in which certain
