Ethanol extraction of seaweed on polyester fabric
Author(s): R Priyanka and Dr. M Jayakumari
Seaweed is abundant in bioactive compounds, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, and is not compatible with skin and biodegradable. In the ulvaceae family, it's an edible green alga. Most marine algae, including chlorophyll, carotenoids, phycobili, beta-carotene, and lutein, have large pigments. The aquatic algae process contains polysaccharides, polysaccharides, lipids, carbohydrates, carotenoids, vitamins, enzymes, sterols, and antibiotics. Alkaloids, terpenes, terpenoids, agaragar, algin, and phloro tannins are the antimicrobial compounds present in seaweeds. Natural colors are produced from green seaweed using ulvans and oligo ulvans and serve as a color that produces pigments. Ulvans were water-soluble pigments used to absorb and transmit green to the surface of the fabric. The Ulvans ' key seaweed pigment. The colors are separated from the sea weed. In this study, the color was extracted from green seaweed, which shows promising color in the fabric.
