Abstract

This study will explore the novel wool dyeing process in non-aqueous medium using nonionic surfactant as a carrier for stable encapsulation of reactive dyes. The objectives of this study are: (i) to develop non-aqueous dyeing system for wool fibre with reactive dyes using nonionic surfactant as carrier and (ii) to study the dyeing performance of the developed non-aqueous dyeing system for wool fibres with reactive dyes. It is expected that the outcomes of this study can achieve: (i) simplify the conventional wool dyeing process with reactive dyes when using water; (ii) lower the dyeing temperature; (iii) eliminate the use of auxiliaries and (iv) reduce wastewater discharge.
