Synthesis of Eco-Friendly Binders from Natural Resources Using Microwave and their Applications in Textile Printing


DIFFERENT oil length alkyd resins based on sunflower were ........prepared using microwave heating .the effect of oil length as well as using different catalysts on the .properties of alkyd resin such as acid value, Tg, solubility and IR data were evaluated. In case of using microwave heating the formation of alkyd resin occurred after 45-60min, while on using conventional heating the reaction duration ranged from 8-10 hr. Also, the prepared alkyds and commercial binder were used separately in the formulation of pigment printing pastes, and the properties of printed fabrics using the prepared binders were found to be comparable with samples printed using the commercial binder.
