Nontextile Applications of Dyes

  • P. F. Gordon
Part of the Topics in Applied Chemistry book series (TAPP)


The previous chapters in this book have described the dyestuffs industry with reference to textiles. It is fair to say that, as far as textile dyes are concerned, most of the work carried out in dyestuffs research in this century has focused upon the development of chromogens already invented in the last century, with a few notable exceptions, e.g., phthalocyanine, triphendioxazines, and benzo-difuranones. Much of this research effort has been directed at modifying the chromogens so that they could be applied to the natural as well as synthetic fibers that started appearing earlier in this century. A great deal of manpower has also been devoted to improving the efficiency of the dyeing process and the quality of the dyes themselves.
