Monosubstitute thiazolyl amines were diazotized in acetic acid, coupled to 1-phenyl-3-aminopyrazol-5-one (1a-1c) and acetylated to obtain the 2a-2c dyes. The dyes were characterized by elemental analysis and spectroscopic (Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), ultraviolet (UV)) methods. The effects on the visible absorption spectra of the substituents present, solvents, pH, concentration and temperature were investigated in detail. Tautomerism of the dyes were investigated by spectroscopic methods. Fastness properties of dyes were studied using the standard method for the assessment of color fastness of textile.
