Multiple-chromophore-containing dyes have been synthesized by azo coupling of twentymembered poly(azomethine) dye and 3-nitro- or 2,4-dinitrobenzene-1-diazonium tetrafluoroborate in solvents of various polarity (water, chloroform) in the presence or absence of dibenzo-18-crown-6 as phase transfer catalyst. The obtained disperse dyes are suitable for dyeing Nylon and polyester fibers from light reddishbrown to dark brown colors with good uniformity of dyeing as well as light, washing and sublimation fastness.
Innovative Aspects and Main Advantages
The main advantages of discovered azo partner compound and azo coupling reaction method in comparison to other known azo partners are as follows:
- Possibility to carry out one-pot azo coupling reaction to form tetrakisazo dyes
- Possibility to obtain azo dyes of deep color under one stage interaction
- Possibility to carry out azo coupling reaction rather middle conditions at 25-30 °C
- Possibility to obtain colored Nylon and polyester fibers from light reddishbrown to dark brown colors with good uniformity of dyeing as well as light, washing and sublimation fastness.
The obtained disperse azo-poly(azomethine) dyes were applied for polyester and Nylon fibers. The results are listed in Table I.

Areas of application
The main areas of application of prepared dyes are textile industry, namely dyeing of synthetic fibers such as Nylon or polyester.
In addition, the dyes may be used in science as sufficient precursors for the synthesis of valuable metal complex compounds or multifunctional dyes of other types.
Stage of development
The preparation of 20-membered polyazomehtine azo partner is developed as well as method of one-pot azo coupling between of 20-membered polyazomehtine and various diazo partners. The dyeing method of Nylon and polyester has also been developed.
