To improve the dyeability and antimicrobial activity of cotton, the cotton was treated. Firstly, Carboxymethylation was carried out in the cotton fibers to form alkali cellulose. Due to carboxymethylation, the alkali cellulose modifies the crystalline structure of cellulose and increases the accessibility of fibers to chemicals by swelling. Secondly, it padded in a solution content (5 % nano zinc oxide, 4% citric acid) or (6 % titanium isopropoxide, 4% citric acid) or in a solution of 5 % nano zinc oxide, 6 % titanium isopropoxide, 4% citric acid or in a solution of 7% nano zinic oxide, 7% titanium isopropoxide, 4% citric acid, at wet pick up of ca 100%, then dried at 85 °C for 5 min., and cured at 100 °C for 3 min, the latter, we use these fabric in dyeing with synthesized acid dye and commercial basic dye finally, we measure antimicrobial activity for these fabric toward Gram negative and Gram positive .
