Colorful Nanofibers for Advanced Apparel Application
We report herein, the synthesis of colorful nanofibers by electrospinning and dyeing with various class of dyestuff. Results revealed that dyes impart better color yield with the acceptable colorimetric values, color yield and color fastness. Morphology of nanofibers showed smooth surface of the dyed nanofibers under SEM. Cellulose nanofibers in particular, were prepared using precursor cellulose acetate and then converted into cellulose under alkaline treatment. Results revealed that dyes impart better color yield with the adequate color yield (KS) and color fastness. Morphology of nanofibers showed smooth nanofibers after dyeing under SEM. Based results obtained, the colorful nanofiber can be a better choice for advance apparel applications.
