Overview


The world's leading peer-reviewed journal dealing with the application of colour, and the only journal that covers all aspects of coloration technology (including; chemistry, physics, technology, engineering and management).

The primary mission of Coloration Technology is to promote innovation and fundamental understanding in the science and technology of coloured materials by providing a medium for communication of peer-reviewed research papers of the highest quality. It is internationally recognised as a vehicle for the publication of theoretical and technological papers on subjects allied to all aspects of coloration.  The topics of papers range from dyes and pigments, to colour measurement, to the coloured substrates themselves.


Aims and Scope


The primary mission of Coloration Technology is to promote innovation and fundamental understanding in the science and technology of coloured materials by providing a medium for communication of peer-reviewed research papers of the highest quality. It is internationally recognised as a vehicle for the publication of theoretical and technological papers on the subjects allied to all aspects of coloration. Regular sections in the journal include reviews, original research and reports, feature articles, short communications and book reviews.   Its scope embraces:

Colorants of all classes in relation to:

  • Molecular structure and physical form and the effects of these on application and in-service properties
  • Chemistry, synthesis and manufacture

Chemicals:
  • Composition and mode of action of chemicals used at any stage in coloration, including pre- and post-coloration processes

Application practice:
  • Processing operations on different types of laboratory and bulk-scale equipment
  • Practical significance of any processing variants
  • Developments in coloration processes

Application theory:
  • Chemistry and physical chemistry of coloration processes
  • Correlation with industrial practice

Analysis and testing:
  • Identification and characterisation of colorants, substrates, finishes and chemicals in substance and on substrates
  • Identification of faults
  • Fastness testing
  • Equipment and techniques

Theory and practice of ancillary processes:
  • Processes involved in coloration or in the achievement of the final coloured product

Physico-chemical aspects of colour:
  • Colour and constitution
  • Colour theory
  • Colorimetry and equipment
  • Colour matching
  • Colour vision
  • Spectra
  • Photochemistry of colorants, substrates and chemicals

 Plant, management and services, provided that it is directly related to coloration, information on:
  • Building, machinery, works engineering and organisation
  • Automation, instrumentation and control
  • Power and energy resources
  • Water quality, supply and handling
  • Effluent, pollution and environmental factors
