A family of five strictly related glycoconjugated azo dyes (GADs), characterized by the presence of the same chromophore and a variable number (1→4) of deprotected hexose units, has been prepared by employing succinate bridges for connecting the azo dye and the sugar portions. The modulation of the hydrophilic portion determines the appreciable changes in the water solubility of GADs. In all the cases, however, hydrophobic fibres (polyester) were homogeneously dyed with GADs at temperatures lower than that used for original azo dyes, at atmospheric pressure, and avoiding the use of surfactants. Furthermore, GADs show an interesting multipurpose character leading to dyeing well also the natural fibres as, for instance, wool. The presence of a variable number of hexose units in the different GADs determines some changes in the colour intensity of dyed fabrics, but in all the cases an appreciable rubbing and water fastness were maintained.
