Product Details

The Chemistry of Natural Dyes is the second in a three-volume series to teach high school chemistry students about dyes and colorants through a hands-on approach. This book looks at traditional dyes derived from plant and animal sources that are still used by many artisans around the world. Students are introduced to the application of plant materials as natural dyes by dyeing eggshells with onion skins and coffee. Other activities include dyeing wool with dyes extracted from natural materials and studying the effect of several mordants on natural dyes.
