Abstract

In this study, antimicrobial and dyeing properties of CI Basic Green 4 dye and dyed acrylic fabrics have been studied against the common pathogens Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Cl Basic green 4 dye was effective against selected test bacteria E. coli, B. subtilis, S. aureus, and P. aeruginosa respectively. The dyed acrylic fabric with malachite green cationic dye displayed various antimicrobial activity (reduction rate: 0-90.00 %) against selected microbes.
