Chapter 1: Newer natural dye sources suitable for cotton fabrics, silk fabrics, and wool yarns
Chapter 2: Isolation and characterization of the colorant molecules from each dye plant
Chapter 3: Structure-mordant interactions, replacement by biomordants and enzymes
Chapter 4: Dyeing application of each dye on cotton, silk and wool with fastness properties, CIELab values and shade card
Chapter 5: Innovative dye extraction methods
Chapter 6: Unique pretreatments and post treatments for natural dyeing
Natural Dyes for Textiles: Sources, Chemistry and Applications is an in-depth guide to natural dyes, offering complete and practical coverage of the whole dyeing process from source selection to post-treatments. The book identifies plants with high dye content that are viable for commercial use, and provides valuable quantitative information regarding extraction and fastness properties, to aid dye selection.
The book presents newer natural dyes in detail, according to their suitability for cotton fabrics, silk fabrics, and wool yarn, before describing the application of each dye. Extraction of plant parts for isolation of colorants, chromatographic techniques for separation, spectroscopic analysis of the isolated colorants, structure elucidation, biomordanting, pretreatments, and post-treatments, are also covered.
Prepared by an expert author with many years of experience in researching and writing on natural textile dyes, this book is an important resource for academic researchers, post-graduate students, textile manufacturers, technicians, dye practitioners, and those involved in textile dye research and development.
