Objective: In this study, bleached jute yarn was treated with methyl methacrylate and then in situ synthesis of silver nanoparticles were performed.

Experimental: Experimental data showed a decrease in tensile strength of treated yarns from 0.91 to 0.78 g/dtex. Afterwards, treated samples were dyed with 1:1 and 1:2 pre-metallised dyes.

Results: Methyl methacrylate treated jute yarns exhibited higher color strength (12.55%) and fastness properties as compared to untreated samples.

Conclusion: Methyl methacrylate treated and nano-coated jute yarns showed much better color strength (23.96%) and higher color fastness properties towards light and washing.


Jute yarn, methyl meta methacrylate, nano silver, pre-metallised dyes, chemical treatment, hemi-cellulose.
