Abstract

Organic pigments can be distinguished from dyes because of the ir inso lubili ty. We have synthesized a soluble base-reactive indigo precursor as a latent pigment, which regenerates an indigo molecule by a base-catalyzed reaction. We also report here the pigmentation of indigo molecules regenerated by the basic species from photobase generator in a polystyrene film.
