One Line Description
Covers the latest developmental work pertaining to functional modification of natural and synthetic textile materials using nanotechnology

The book is an important resource for academics, industry engineers, postgraduate students and researchers working in the fields of textile chemistry, nanofunctional finishing, chemical engineering and materials science.

Nanotechnology has been the leading the charge in many areas of science and now it is playing an extraordinary role in the functional finishing of textiles and polymers. It has sought to improve existing material performances and develop fibers, composites, and novel finishing methods. Application of nanoparticles has imparted novel characteristics to textiles such as flame retardation, UVblocking, water repellence, self-cleaning, and antimicrobial properties.
This book on Nanomaterials in the Wet Processing of Textiles presents diverse aspects of nanomaterial application in the textile industry, approaches used for synthesis and application, as well as strategies to remove toxic effluents from wastewaters employing state-of-the-art nanoadsorbents.
Among the main topics in the book are:
• Textile dyeing using metallic nanoparticles
• Metal oxide nanoparticles for multifunctional finishing
• New approaches to produce UV protective textiles
• Polymeric nanocomposites for antimicrobial finishing
• Self-cleaning of textiles using advanced nanoparticles
• Silver nanoparticles in dyeing and finishing applications
• Nano zinc oxide in the textile industry
• Textile effluent using chitosan nanocomposites
• Remediation of textile effluents using nano-catalysts.
