Abstract

As dye factories, large and small, sprang up in Europe in the last half of the nineteenth century, not only were dyes produced, but also tumors. In the beginning, of course, this danger could not be foreseen. The first aniline dyes had been discovered in England and France, but large-scale production of these dyes followed soon after in Germany, too. The name of the huge chemical firm Badische Anilin- und Sodafabrik (BASF) is still a reminder of this first generation of synthetic dyes.
