19_13b/2009Pigment Synthesis: PY181 Pigment Microspheres of Nanoplates Synthesized via Polymer-Induced Liquid Precursors (Adv. Funct. Mater. 13/2009)

A polymer-induced liquid precursor is used for a pigment yellow 181 crystal formed by chemical reaction in mixed solvents of water and isopropanol by direct azo coupling under the directing influence of a designed copolymer additive. This leads to a pigment with novel complex morphology and unusal properties, as shown by Cölfen et al. on page 2095.
