    Impurities, such as oil, waxes, pectins, proteins and and natural colouring-matter have to be removed from raw cotton during the preparation stages (scouring and bleaching) for subsequent dyeing and for any other wet processing treatments that follow. In order to develope novel enzymatic process for preparation of cotton-containing fabric, changes in chemical and physical surface properties of cotton fiber were followed according to conventional processing by using various analytical methods. Results on chemical compositions, ESCA and TOF-Sims analysis of cotton fabrics originating from different preparation stages will be presented.
