|Title:||Improvement in dyeability of wool fabric by microwave treatment|
|Keywords:||Dyeing;Microwave treatment;Wool fabric|
|Abstract:||Wool fabric has been treated with microwave irradiation at different conditions and then studied for its physical and chemical properties using a variety of techniques, such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron. It is found that the treated wool fabric significantly improves its dyeability. This may be due to the change in wool surface morphological structure under microwave irradiation which implies that the barrier effect in wool dyeing is diminished. The breaking strength of the treated wool fabrics also improves with microwave irradiation. The chemical structure and crystallinity do not show any significant change.|
