Study of the morphology, aggregation structure and properties of Bombyx morisilk treated by low temperature oxygen plasma showed that slight flutes appeared on the surface of bombyx mori silk fiber and that its surface structure changed after plasma treatment. The conformation also changed and crystalline degree decreased. The stannic filling rate of treated fiber was improved. Because of etching, the weight of the fiber decreased but the breaking strength changed little after short-time treatment.
