Paper Abstract

Surface modification of textile materials is of major importance in the modern textile industry. Several methods are commonly applied to produce a broad range of coated materials. The adhesion between the coating polymers and the textile fibers often determines the quality. Improved adhesion of the coating is achieved by a chemical bonding (covalent or ionic) between the coating materials and the textile. The efficiency,however, is dependent on the orientation of the functional groups of the outmost molecular layers of the fibers. Therefore, we have used surface sensitive methods to analyze the surface structure of proteinaceous fibers. Homopoly(aminoacid) films like poly(-(gamma) -benzyl-L-glutamate) and poly(- (Beta) -benzyl-L-aspartate) have been chosen as models for natural fibers like wool.
