Abstract
Introduction: Much research has been carried out in the field of chemical modification of cotton to improve dyeing properties [1]. Recent advances in biotechnology, especially in genetic engineering, offer an alternative route to alter reactivity of cotton fibres and thus to reduce the environmental impact and energy consumption of conventional cotton processing. However the success of this breakthrough approach is dependent on the early selection of new fibre types with the best performance. This requires novel tests that use only small amounts of fibre sample due to the very limited availability of bioengineered lines. For this purpose, a semi industrial dyeing method is extensively studied. The method is validated by a well established technique for nitrogen analysis, the Kjehdahl method, using cotton fibres treated with a commercially available cationic agent at various concentrations.
