Light-induced stable free radicals (SFRs) were detected in azoreactive dyed cotton fabrics. Extremely slow photofading occurred under exposure to light of relatively long wavelength. The rate of photofading and SFR formation depend on the structure of the dye. Some of them show little drop in the rate of fading with the increasing wavelength, whereas others show nearly negligible changes under incident light of relatively long wavelength. In general a high rate of photofading was found when the SFR concentration was low.
