How can tannic acid be used for a fabric to retain dye?

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

The dye is Malachite green specifically.
I understand that tannic acid has many hydrogen bonds making it very polar, but i don't understand how it is a mordant between a fibre and the dye.

Any help is much appreciated.
