This book provides an up-to-date insight into the chemistry behind the colour of the dyes and pigments that make our world so colourful. The impressive breadth of coverage starts with a dip into the history of colour science. "Colour Chemistry" then goes on to look at the structure and synthesis of the various dyes and pigments, along with their applications in the traditional areas of textiles, coatings and plastics, and also the ever-expanding range of "high-tech" applications. Also discussed are some of the environmental issues associated with the manufacture and use of colour. The broad and balanced coverage presented in this book makes it ideal for students and graduates. In addition, mant specialists in industry or academia will also benefit from the overview of the subject that is provided. part of the RSC Paperbacks series]

Industry Reviews

"""... a unique book that provides an excellent, up-to-date overview of colour chemistry at an affordable price. It is easy to read and will benefit students, specialists and non-specialists in industry and academe.""" * "Chemistry in Britain, July 2001, No 37, No 7, p 101" * """... provides a complete overview of the subject matter and will benefit all that choose to read it!""" * "ChemWeb Web Site, 21 August 2001" * """... a concise and readable book, at a very affordable price. I can strongly recommend it to students of colour chemistry or applied chemistry, and to anyone desiring a comprehensive overview of modern colour chemistry.""" * "Chemistry & Industry, No 17, p 541, 3 September 2001" * """... a good fundamental introduction to the art of colour science through its broad and balanced coverage ... a valuable reference for both students studying colour science and those working within the coloration industry.""" * "Coloration Technology, Vol 117, No 4, 2001, p 239" * """The more I read, the better I liked it ...
