The cellulosic fibers were dyed to equilibrium with Congo Red before and after cellulase treatment. The fibers examined were rayon, polynozic, cupra, flax, and cotton. It was found that the volume term for dyeing (V) was associated with weight loss (WL) caused by the cellulase treatment, for the original fibers. Apparent affinity for dyeing (AF) for the cellulase-treated fibers was calculated using a constant value of V obtained for each kind of the original fibers. The results led to the… CONTINUE READING
