Acid Dye

An acid dye is a dye which is a salt of a sulfuric, carboxylic or phenolic organic acid. The salts are often sodium or ammonium salts. Acid Dyes are typically soluble in water and possesses affinity for amphoteric fibers while lacking Direct Dyes' affinity for cellulose fibers. When dyeing, ionic bonding with fiber cationic sites accounts for fixation of colored anions in the dyed material. Acids are added to dyeing baths to increase the number of protonated amino-groups in fibers.

Some acid Dyes are used as food colorants.

Uses

1. Fibers

In the laboratory, home, or art studio, the acid used in the dye-bath is often vinegar (acetic acid) or citric acid. The uptake rate of the dye is controlled with the use of sodium chloride. In textiles, acid dyes are effective on protein fibers, i.e. animal hair fibers like wool, alpaca and mohair. They are also effective on silk. They are effective in dyeing the synthetic fiber nylon, but of minimum interest in dyeing any other synthetic fibers.

2. Medical

In staining during microscopic examination for diagnosis or research, acid dyes are used to color basic tissue proteins. In contrast, Basic Dyes are used to stain cell nuclei and some other acidic components of tissues.
