Concept

Problem: Look at the list of fabrics that are woven into the multifiber fabric. Which do you suspect will be the most difficult to dye? Which do you suspect will absorb the dyes in a similar way? Why?

FREE Expert Solution

For this problem, we have to determine which of the fabric molecules is the most difficult to dye and works a similar way

  • As we know, dyes are mostly composed of aryl diazonium salts which are derived from aniline that follows the structure:


  • Notice that we have a positively charged N which makes this molecule polar and will interact with polar molecules
  • In order for dyes to stain or color a fabric, fabric must have polar sites where dyes can interact
