Textile industry has been considered for years to be one of the major sources of worldwide pollution problems. Huge amount of wastewater is generated at different stages of textile manufacturing. These waste products are mostly released in the environment without prior consideration. In Fact, they are highly contaminated with lot of chemicals including dyes. For this reason, the investigation of the effects of those compounds over the environment and human health has become a great interest. This review outlines the chemical synonyms, molecular structure and the toxicological effects of 85 textile dyes. The potential fate and effect of those substances on aquatic, human health and ecosystem are discussed in this article.
