Enzymatic pretreatment of textile can improve the absorbency and activity toward certain chemicals and nanoparticles. Polyester/wool fabric can be modified with protease and lipase to enhance surface activity. Application of nano TiO2 along with a cross-linking agent to the enzyme-pretreated polyester/wool fabric led to a higher adsorption and stabilization of nanoparticles on the fabric surface. Enhanced self-cleaning, antibacterial and UV protection properties can be obtained on the enzyme-pretreated fabric.
