This paper deals with the effect of dyeing and thermal behavior of ethyl acrylate and 2-hydroxy ethyl methacrylate-modified bleached jute fibre in a K2S2O8/FeSO4 redox system. The graft yield increased with the increase of monomer, initiator, and reaction time up to certain values, and then it decreased. Under optimum conditions, the highest graft yield for EA-modified and 2-HEMA-modified bleached jute fibre was 22.5% and 24.79%, respectively. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was used to confirm the presence of monomers on the treated jute fibre. Thermogravimetric analysis was used to study the thermal behavior of the modified fibre. It is observed that jute fibre dyed with Reactive Orange 14 and Direct Blue 1 exhibited better colour fastness on exposure to sunlight in the air than dyed with Reactive Brown 10 and Direct Orange 1. Modified jute fibre showed improved thermal and mechanical stability as well as dyeability the fibre.
