Polymorph of 2,9-Dichloroquinacridone and Their Electronic Properties
Abstract:2,9-Dichloroquinacridone is an industrially important bluishred pigment which falls in the category of hydrogen-bonded pigments. In addition to red single crystals, we have recently isolated black single crystals from the vapor phase. Structure analysis of both crystals revealed that the red phase is typically characterized by NH…O intermolecular hydrogen bonds and corresponds to the commercial product; whereas, in the black phase, there exist no intermolecular hydrogen bonds, quite contrary to our expectation. Furthermore, the molecule in the black phase is heavily deformed and has a higher heat of formation than that in the red phase. Because of this, the black phase can easily be transformed into the red phase by heating at about 530 K for several minutes. Additionally, molecular distortion upon crystallization is found to largely displace the absorption band toward longer wavelengths, giving rise to a black color in the solid state.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
