讲座内容：There is little doubt that textile industry will exist as long as human society. However, textile industry, as it is, is unlikely to be sustainable. Indeed, major textile producing regions have seen increasing negative impacts of textile industry on both lives and environment, and there appear to be few practically feasible solutions in sight. Much of the challenges lie in the intrinsic inability of existing colourant chemistry and polymer chemistry to meeting opposing requirements. This talk aims to share views on tangible routes to significantly alleviating the negative impacts of textile industry on environment and even fundamentally resolving the challenges that threaten the sustainability of textile industry. The focus will be placed on examples of research that is aimed at developing ground-breaking colourant chemistry and polymer chemistry that lend themselves to significantly reducing negative impacts of textile industry on lives and environment and thus will hopefully help sustain textile industry for many decades to come.
