Abstract:
Natural dyes derived from plant materials have gained prominence due to their safety, biodegradability, and environmental friendliness compared to synthetic dyes. In this study, babool bark (Acacia nilotica) was chosen as a natural dye source for cotton fabric. Phytochemical analysis was conducted using three different solvents (aqueous, ethanol, and methanol) to identify the bioactive compounds responsible for both coloration and potential health benefits. The results revealed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, and other phytochemicals, with anthraquinones, tannins, and flavonoids being significant contributors to coloration. The aqueous extraction method was selected for dye preparation, considering cost-effectiveness and simplicity. The findings suggest that babool bark extract could be a valuable natural dye source for textiles, offering both coloration and enhanced textile properties. This research aligns with the principles of green chemistry and highlights the potential of natural dyes in sustainable textile applications.
