What is Synthetic Dyes

Impact of Textile Dyes on Public Health and the Environment
Synthetic dyes are found in a wide range of products such as clothes, leather accessories, and furniture. These dyes are commonly used every day. However, a side effect of their widespread use is that up to 12% of these dyes are wasted during the dying process and about 20% of this wastage enters the environment (mainly into water supply).

Colour is the most important part to make any fabric attractive, but its use for dying has become a major environmental hazard. Colloidal particles present with color increases the turbidity, gives bad appearance, foul odour, and obstructs the penetration of sunlight into water bodies required for the photosynthesis process, which interferes with the oxygen flow mechanism and hence marine life. So, it is essential to remove such pollutants from the waste water before its final disposal into water bodies. Photocatalysis is one of the advance oxidation processes, mainly carried out in the presence of light and suitable photocatalytic materials for the degradation of dyes. This chapter outlines the background of dye chemistry, the application areas, and the impact of dyeing effluents in the environment and on living beings.
