Zeal to learn the subject
This subject includes the technochemical aspects of various surface active agents used in textile wet processing industries i.e. detergents, wetting agents, mercerizing wetting agents, stain removers, dyeing, printing and finishing auxiliaries, etc. It also involves the chemistry and application of speciality surfactants like fluorosurfactants, silicone surfactants, etc.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Select the type of auxiliary for various types of wet processing applications.
2. Understand the chemistry of various auxiliaries used in wet processing.
3. Know the formulation of various classes of auxiliaries.
4. Know the recent developments in Textile auxiliaries i.e. specialty surfactants, silicon surfactants. etc.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos,animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
