Practical Industrial Dyes Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Industrial Dyes
Chemistry, Properties, Applications

edited by Klaus Hunger

Industrial Dyes provides comprehensive coverage of the chemistry, properties and applications of the most important groups of industrial dyes, including optical brighteners. It also outlines the latest developments in the area of functional dyes.

Renowned experts in their respective fields have contributed to the chapters on chemical chromophores, synthesis and application of the various dye classes, textile dyeing and non-textile dyeing.

The book is aimed at all professionals who are involved in the synthesis, production, manufacture or application of dyes and will prove to be an indispensable guide to all chemists, engineers and technicians in dye science and industry.
