There has recently been an increasing interest in water treatment methods as a result of growing concerns over shortages of clean water. This paper aims to review the past and present researches on chitosan for the adsorption of heavy metals from the wastewater. Adsorption is considered to be the most efficient method for the removal of metal impurities from drinking water. Chitosan, a deacetylated derivative of chitin, has many commercial applications due to its biocompatibility, nontoxicity, and biodegradability. Moreover, amine groups are present on the backbone of chitosan. For this reason, chitosan has been used for the adsorption of heavy metals. To begin with, mechanism of adsorption of heavy metal ions on chitosan and disadvantages of heavy metal ions were reviewed. Further, a detailed review had been done on the adsorption capacities of crosslinked chitosan, chitosan nanofibers, chitosan nanoparticles, chitosan composites, modified/pure chitosan, and porous chitosan. Lastly, research gaps and future recommendations were given for further development and accurate results of adsorption.

Friction forces play a very important role in performance of sewing thread during the sewing process. Various finishes are applied over sewing threads to reduce the friction forces, which help in masking the basic properties of sewing thread and reduce the yarn to metal friction and yarn to yarn friction. In this paper, the effect of lubrication (%) on tensile properties of sewing thread is measured at four sewing stages: before sewing, after dynamic loading at the tension regulator, after passage through the needle and fabric assembly, and after bobbin thread interaction. It is found that as the lubrication per cent increases friction coefficient decreases, in general. Due to this, the loss in tensile properties of the sewing threads during sewing decrease. Tenacity loss decreases during all sewing stages, as the lubrication percentage increases.

The digital design of the clothing model currently existing in the clothing enterprise is still only an auxiliary tool in the sense of drawing. This type of garment computer-aided design (CAD) systems can not integrate the design principles and knowledge of the clothing professional field, similar design and expert experience into the system, which leads to the need for the plate-making to rely on the personal experience of the pattern maker, and there is a problem of low design efficiency. The intelligent clothing CAD system for tailoring the needs of clothing personalization can solve the defects of traditional CAD by curing the knowledge of clothing layout design. In this paper, through the method of plate-making experiment, the knowledge of garment plate-making process is analyzed and refined, and the garment model design model is constructed by using directed graph. The method of applying the model to smart garment CAD systems is illustrated by an example.

Reuse of waste resources is still a challenging issue for public health and ecosystem protection. Herein, natural superfine down particles (NSDP) were successfully prepared from the wasted down fibers and investigated for the removal of methylene blue (MB) and methyl orange (MO) dyes from the binary dye solution. The adsorbent was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and N2 adsorption. The adsorption behavior of NSDP for these two dyes was investigated as a function of pH. The results showed that the NSDP surface has surface area of 7 277 cm2/g and an abundance of functional groups (carboxyl, hydroxyl and amine-groups). The adsorption capacity of NSDP was strongly pH-dependence. The results indicated that NSDP can be used as an efficient and economic adsorbent to remove dyes in the textile effluents.

This Paper elaborates the performance of biomass graphene modified fibers and the importance of muscle protection during running. Then, it analyzes the muscle contraction and relaxation during the running process and the human thermal-wet comfort. According to the needs, we conduct the human body partition and enter the design of the compression garments. During the design process, the functionalities of graphene modified fibers and the advantages of seamless knitting are explained. The function and technique are integrated to ensure the scientific and rationality of compression garments design. Finally, the detailed design concept are illustrated.
