Antibacterial Activity of Cotton, Wool and Silk Fabrics Dyed with Daphne sericea Vahl Collected from Antalya

Menekşe Suzan Teker*


Antalya is very important in the rich vegetation of the Mediterranean region. This richness of plants is an important source for dyes as well as the medicine, cosmetics and food industry. In this article, Daphne sericea Vahl is used as a source of dyestuff, locally called “ezentere” in Döşemealtı. Daphne (Thymealaceae) species have been widely used in traditional Anatolian medicine, but Daphne sericea Vahl is evaluated as a dyestuff in this study. A natural dye has been extracted from Daphne sericea Vahl and its antibacterial activity on cotton, wool and silk fabrics has been studied. According to results of against antimicrobial activity of dyed fabrics; Non mordant and alum mordant dyeing was seen to provide effective protection for all bacteria species (2 gram negative and 2 gram positive) and also all fabric samples (silk satin, silk mongol, cotton, gabardine), iron mordant dyeing was effective against to just gram negative bacteria except gabardine fabric. Potassium mordant dyeing was not providing any protection to bacteria species.
