Dye Chemistry

Chemistry and physics of dyes.

A dye is a chemical compound that is soluble in solvents or binder. Dyes are used for dyeing of materials (eg plastics, paper, food, inks, ...). See also: pigment = unsoluble.

The range of applications of synthetic and natural dyes (often, but not exclusively plant pigments) and colorants is extremely wide and affects virtually all areas of natural, industrial production and daily life. Equally great is the range of available dyes, perfectly suitable for the particular application and use. The use of dyes in certain areas subject to legal guidelines, such as in food or cosmetics. Here is the list of ingredients are often marked with special designations such as C.I. numbers or the INCI name. We should also mention the use of colors and dyes in the art and in paint chemistry.

Below is a list of available online information about the chemistry and physics of the dyes as well as individual dyes.
