Inks for Ink-Jet Printing of Textiles

Ink-jet printing of textiles has emerged as a very promising field since it offers the following advantages over conventional screen printing: fabrics can be printed with minimum lead times; short runs are possible for printing any design; less space required for set-up; minimal fabric wastage; minimal water pollution as the amount of colour applied is […]

Industrial organic photochromic dyes

Organic photochromic molecules are well established as colorants in the manufacture of niche products, providing striking colour change effects when irradiated with light. This paper describes the industrially important classes of photochromic dye in terms of their development and chemistries, the applications in which their photochromism is employed commercially, and the technical features behind their […]

Styryl dyes – Synthesis and Applications during the last 15 years

One of the most widely used and important groups of functional dyes are the styryl dyes and a review of this functional dye class has not been published for more than 15 years. In this review article, we describe the new trends in the synthesis of a range of novel intermediates and styryl dyes and […]

The Diffusional Boundary Layer: Some Implications for the Dyeing Technologist

Modern computational devices of the 1980s, e.g., the new card programmable “pocket” calculators  provide the dyeing technologist with a useful and inexpensive means of reducing the formidability of computation associated with the use of complex diffusion equations. Armed with these modern tools  the dyeing technologist of the 1980s can use the previously imposing “boundary layer” […]
