OPTIMIZATION OF THE AQUEOUS EXTRACT PROCESS FROM MANGOSTEEN PEEL FOR DYEING SILK
Keywords:silk, natural color, mangosteen peel, extracting and testing a natural plant dye.
This research studied the juice extraction process from mangosteen peel with water solvent and the paramesters influencing on extraction process such as extraction temperature, extraction time and extraction ratio, and evaluating the juice of extract by determining extraction efficiency, color saturation of fabric and color fastness of silk fabric. The research results showed that the juice extracted from mangosteen peel can be used to dye silk fabric with high color strength and fastness. And the results of research will bring the efficiency of environmental, economy and society; and will meet urgent demands today.
