Majid Montazer and Samira Seifollahzadeh Enhanced Self-cleaning, Antibacterial and UV Protection Properties of Nano TiO2 Treated Textile through Enzymatic Pretreatment Photochemistry and Photobiology 87
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.
