Nanocellulose, derived form bioresources, is a green material with broad application prospects. For its easily controllable viscosity, it has been studied by many researchers on its potential application on nano-ink for ink-jet printing by mixing dyes and nanocellulose. In this paper, a new method by grafting reactive dyes on nanocellulose is proposed. The well-known fabric dyeing was first applied for dyeing nanocellulose. The dyeing reaction was Reactive Red 120 (RR120) grafting on nanocellulose, which was influenced by the dosage of RR120, reaction time, and reaction temperature. The RR120 was successfully grafted on nanocellulose, and a model for RR120 grafting on nanocellulose was proposed as “y = 0.2 * (0.0039T2 - 0.5T + 20) * (e0.72R) * (3 - 0.99t)”, to predict the RR120 grafting amount at different reaction conditions.
