Researchers of Islamic Azad University, Birjand branch, have presented a new method using plasma and Nanotechnology in order to improve dyeability of textile fibers.

According to an ISCA report, Amin Aldin Haji, faculty member of Birjand IAU, explained that using nanotechnology could help improving the sorption and fastness of natural dyes on wool, cotton, silk etc., and is not harmful to the environment.

He noted that presenting an environmentally friendly method to remove toxic ways which have been used in traditional dyeing, is the main goal of carrying out this research.

As Haji said, increasing wool fibers absorption and the speed of the dyeing process as well as significant reduction of environmental pollutants of the wastewater produced by color industries, were some of the applications of this research.

The result of this research has been published in the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules.
