Product Details

The Chemistry of Vat Dyes is the first in a three-volume series to teach high school chemistry students about dyes and colorants through a hands-on approach. This book examines the chemistry behind the indigo blue in jeans along with other vat-type dyes. Vat dyes are are water-insoluble dyes which can be reduced in the presence of a base to form a water soluble dye known as a leuco base.
