A study on the enzymatic degumming on silk fabric using Carica papaya skin

Author(s): Kasireddy Lakshmi Devi and A. Priyadarshini
Abstract:
Enzymatic degumming involves proteolytic degradation of sericin using specific protease which does not attack fibroin. The main sources of protease are bacterial, fungal, plant and animal origin. In this study, an attempt has been made to synthesize protease enzyme from Carica papaya skin after degumming the sample was dyed with natural dyes. It is evaluated for the suitability in degumming of silk fabric. The degummed samples were subjected to subjective evolution such as whiteness, luster and appearance and comfort properties were also carried out.
