Many studies have been carried out to improve the dyeability of anionic dyes onto cellulosic fibers. Modification of cotton using cationic compounds has been most widely used. In this study, an effort was made to cationize cotton fabrics using cellulose-reactive allylamine polymer, namely triazinyl N,N'-dimethyl-N,N'-diallyl ammonium chloride in the previous work. The results showed that the dye-uptake of treated cotton fabrics with acid dyes and reactive dyes markedly increased in the various dyeing conditions. In addition, the dyeing rate of cationized cotton was also faster than that of untreated counterpart. Furthermore, the antimicrobial property was also investigated to determine the effects of cationization.
