Abstract Plasma generated by non-polymerizing gases (oxygen, air and nitrogen) and electron-beam irradiation under different atmospheres were studied as possible pretreatments to an enzymatic process with transglutaminase (TGase). The aim was to improve the accessibility of target groups of TGase present in wool fabrics to the enzyme, thanks to chemical etching or the removal of the epicuticle layer by physical etching, thus leading to increased formation of cross-links or incorporation of… CONTINUE READING
