The title compound (E-88: Orient Chemical Industries) is an Al-complex which includes salicylic acid derivatives as ligands and is widely used as a charge-control agent (CCA) for full color toners. However, E-88 possesses a relatively low decomposition point around 130-180 °C. For this reason, an attempt has been made in the present investigation to improve the thermal stability by exploring a new polymorph that possesses a higher thermal stability. Recrystallization has therefore been made from solution in various solvents, among which dimethylsulfoxide yielded a hexa-nuclear Al-complex (molecular weight: 3310) that exhibits a decomposition temperature of 270 °C. Furthermore, this phase is found to exhibit an excellent CCA performance. In addition, the temperature dependence of the electrical conductivity has also been made in connection with our previously proposed chargecontrol mechanism of CCAs.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
