 Dye - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The dye is usually used as an aqueous solution, and may require a mordant to improve the fastness of the dye on the fibre.
Mordant dyes require a mordant, which improves the fastness of the dye against water, light and perspiration.
The most important mordant dyes are the synthetic mordant dyes, or chrome dyes, used for wool; these comprise some 30% of dyes used for wool, and are especially useful for fl and navy shades.

 Mordant dyes, Dying, Textile colors
Mordant dyes are those dyes which require a mordant in their application and which upon combination with the mordant deposit insoluble color on the substrate, e.g., dyes with metal chelating groups.
Mordants are substances of organic or inorganic origin which combine with the coloring matter and are used to fix the same in the production of the color.
The mordant substances include such acids as tannic acid, sumac, gall nuts, bark extracts, oleic and stearic acids, and Turkey red oil; and metallic substances such as various combinations or soluble salts of chromium, aluminum, iron, copper, and tin.

This term is derived from lac, a mordant dye obtained from an insect in India, and from which shellac is obtained.
The attachment of the mordant metal to tissue is essentially by the same mechanism as that causing attachment to the dye.
Attachment of mordanted dye is due to the mordant forming a chelate with a phosphate hydroxyl and another atom in a manner very similar to that between the mordant and the dye.

 John Marshall: mordants
In the context of how the word will be used in this text, mordanting is adding a substance to the dye source to influence it, that is to bringing out characteristics that may be otherwise hidden or suppressed.
Mordants are commercially available, commonly in the form of salts from metals such as tin, chrome, iron, copper, and aluminum.
The advantage is that the mordant has a chance to "bite" into the fiber, so that when the color is applied, a maximum amount of bonding takes place.

 What's the difference between mordants and the other chemical assistants used in dyeing?
A mordant is a metal ion which attaches to the fiber, usually by being boiled together for a length of time.
Most but not all natural dyes are mordant dyes, which require the metal ion to be in the fiber in order for them to have any attraction to the fiber.
In some cases a mordant will improve the washfastness of an acid dye on wool, but there is no need to use a mordant with most synthetic acid dyes.

 Color diffusion transfer receiving layer comprising polymeric quaternary n-heterocyclic mordant - Patent 4124386
The polymer mordant having the structural unit represented by general formula (I) can be prepared by reacting a homopolymer, copolymer, or graft polymer of a halomethylstyrene, preferably a homopolymer, copolymer, or graft polymer of chloromethylstyrene, and a heterocyclic compound or by quaternizing the monomer with a heterocyclic compound and then polymerizing the product.
Or, further, the polymer mordant can be readily prepared by reacting a homopolymer of N-vinylimidazole or a copolymer of N-vinylimidazole and a vinylic monomer such as styrene, methyl methacrylate, and N-vinylpyrrolidone with a benzyl halide in a solvent such as dimethylformamide, dioxane, or ethanol.
Alternatively, the layer of the polymer mordant need not be formed preliminarily on the support and a solution of the polymer mordant can be applied on the surface of the support simultaneously when a liquid processing composition is spread thereover at development.

Mordant Music's Dead Air is the type of album meant to be experienced, not casually listened to.
More artistic than accessible, more stream of consciousness than steady dance floor fodder, Mordant Music masterfully weaves such elements as musique concrete to electro, making them vanguards with a sound palette that they brush over a world of wire, static, steel, and mortar.
Vibrant, though not vacuous, Dead Air will remind some listeners of a late night movie they watched even though they didn't quite grasp the plot; a movie they continued to watch until the credits rolled and they were left contemplating what they had just witnessed.

In other words, the greatest amounts of color change were attributed to alum and tin mordants and the least amount of color change occurred with chrome, copper, and iron mordants as indicated by the significant main effects.
However, when comparing all dye-mordant combinations, there was one dye (choke cherry) with an alum mordant that had less color change than three dyes with chrome mordants (see Figure 2), yet even choke cherry followed the general trend of having the most color change when it was mordanted with alum or tin.
In fact, the tin mordant had a slope, B =.1557, which was five times larger than the slope with the copper mordant, B =.0319 (see Figure 3).
