Abstract: A vast array of colorants obtained from natural sources such as plants, insects/animals and microbes have been scrutinized in recent past for their use in different kinds of applications. Research into new natural dyes sources along with eco-friendly, robust and cost-effective technologies for their processing and application have greatly aided in widening the scope of natural dyes in various traditional and advanced application disciplines. This review encompasses a summary of research performed in last 15 years (1998–2013) in different arenas of applications of natural dyes, with specific reference to technological development in natural textile dyeing and use of natural dyes in functional finishing of textiles, food coloration and dye-sensitized solar cells. In addition, some newly discovered applications of natural dyes have also been discussed. more

Abstract: This paper reports the studies available on the characterization and chemical/biochemical analysis of natural dyes; extraction of colorants from different natural sources; effects of different mordants and mordanting methods; conventional and non-conventional methods of natural dyeing; physico-chemical studies on dyeing process variables and dyeing kinetics; development of newer shades and analysis of colour parameters for textiles dyed with natural dyes; and test of compatibility for application of binary mixture of natural dyes. The chemical modification of textile substrate for improving dyeability, attempts for improvement in overall colour fastness properties and survey of some traditional processes of natural dyeing in different parts of India have also been discussed. more

Abstract: The present study was taken up as an exploratory study to test if some natural dyes have inherent antimicrobial activity with a view to develop protective clothing from these. Four natural dyes Acacia catechu , Kerria lacca , Quercus infectoria , Rubia cordifolia and Rumex maritimus were tested against common pathogens Escherichia coli , Bacillus subtilis , Klebsiella pneumoniae , Proteus vulgaris and Pseudomonas aeruginosa . Quercus infectoria dye was most effective and showed maximum zone of inhibition thereby indicating best antimicrobial activity against all the microbes tested. Minimum inhibitory concentration was found to be varying from 5 to 40 μg. The textile material impregnated with these natural dyes, however, showed less antimicrobial activity, as uptake of these dyes in textile material is below MIC. more

Abstract: The objectives of this study were to evaluate the light fastness of selected natural dyes (madder, weld and woad) and the effect of some commonly used antioxidants and UV absorbers on the light fastness of these dyes. The photofading rate curves of madder and weld fixed on cotton correspond to type II fading rate curves described by Giles. These results are in concordance with those of Cox-Crews. The woad presents a type III fading rate curve, similar to the indigo fading rate curve presented by Cox-Crews. A poor light fastness of the three natural dyes in comparison with synthetic ones is established beyond question. Nevertheless, the use of some additives can improve this default of natural dyes. In all the cases, the use of UV absorbers or antioxidants improved the light fastness of dyed fabrics. The most effectives were the vitamin C and the gallic acid. more
