The major aim of this paper was to assess the capability of polymeric nanofibers membranes containing nylon 6/titanium which were electrospun onto both sides of the spacer fabric and then was treated with chitosan for removing acidic dyes from textile waste water. The prepared compositions were characterized by SEM analysis. Chitosan treated nylon/TiO2/spacer (CNTS) compositions showed the highest amount of discoloration for acidic dyes at pH = 6. The results of this study exhibited CNTS structures could be used as a great absorbent in removing azoic dyes of wastewater.
