Abstract

Cotton textiles are dyed mostly with reactive dyes because they produce a wide range of bright colors with excellent colour fastness to washing. However, the reactive dyeing requires considerable quantities of inorganic salt and alkali for efficient utilization and application of dyes. These inorganic salts when drained to effluent generate huge amounts of total dissolved solids leading to serious environmental pollution. Considerable remedies are being measured within the textile processing industry to reduce the effluent pollution and to fulfill the environmental regulations. This work is a part of such efforts and presents results where cotton fabrics pretreated with chitosan nanoparticles and reactive dyeing carried out without salt. In this work, chitosan nanoparticle was used for developing salt free eco-friendly reactive dyeing. The effect of chitosan nanoparticles in color strength (K/S value), color difference, color fastness to crocking and washing of the cotton fabric was investigated. The cotton fabric treated with 0.5 (w/v) chitosan nanoparticles had higher K/S values.
