|Abstract(s):||Conventional rinsing to remove residual hydrogen peroxide after the bleaching of cotton fabric can be replaced by enzymatic cleaning using catalases. Our previous study showed that dyeing in such catalase-treated bleaching baths results in a shade change on the dyed fabrics. The aim of this present study was to investigate the reasons for the unacceptable colour differences of the dyed fabrics. Experiments were performed to study the possible temperature-dependent dye interactions in the standard dyebath, and in the dyebath prepared with bleaching effluent. Fluorescence emission spectra were used to detect changes in the structure of the catalase related to the thermal unfolding and denaturing of the protein. It was found that the colour difference on the dyed textiles could be attributed to the temperature-dependent dye-enzyme interaction and precipitation, as well as to the complexity of the bleaching bath composition.|
