- We have studied the pilling performance and electrostatic discharge behavior of knitted wool fabrics subjected to different chemical treatments involving quatemized amphiphilic peptides. We observed a marked improvement in both parameters in samples treated with reactive agents in the presence of these amphiphile molecules. Also, we investigated the role of these peptides in preventing pill formation and de creasing the electrostatic discharge time.
