Azo-Fe complexes and their sodium salts are well-known charge-control agents (CCAs) used widely in electrophotography. Aside from the CCA performance, a high thermal stability is also required because pulverized toners are prepared by kneading CCA with various toner components at about 130-180 °C. Therefore, thermal stability has been investigated in azo-Fe complexes from the standpoint of the crystal structure. X-ray analysis revealed that the ammonium cations bridge neighboring azo-Fe complex anions through intermolecular NHO hydrogen bonds. On the other hand, the Na cations are also found to connect different azo-Fe complex anions through the formation of Na complexes. These facts lead us to conclude that the high thermal stability of azo-Fe complexes is attributed to the intermolecular bonds formed by ammonium or sodium cations.

  • 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.
