Eman Mohamed Osman, Monira Nesim Michael, Hoda Gohar


This work has focused on developing eco-friendly treatments for modifying the fabric surface. Thus; we studied in details the effect of individual and combined uv\ozone and chitosan on wool and silk fabric samples. All the treated samples are characterized and evaluated by: i) Fourier transform infrared spectra with attenuated total reflection analysis (FTIR-ATR), ii) Performance properties, iii) Mechanical measurements, and iv) Dyeing characteristics using two different dye classes namely, reactive dye (C.I. Reactive Orange 69) and direct dye (C.I Direct Yellow 11) applied on both wool and silk samples modified with the above mentioned three techniques.
