Antibacterial Activity of Cationised Cotton Dyed with Some Natural Dyes


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 using these natural dyes. For enhancing the dyeability of cotton fabric with natural dyes, three cationising agents namely; Monochloro-S-Triazine, Quat 188 and Solfix E were used. Four natural dyes namely; Madder, Logwood, Cutch and Chelidonium majus were tested against common pathogens Escherichia Coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Aspergillus favus and Candida albicans.
