Azo or hydrazone structure in azo pigments
Abstract:Azo dyes and pigments are typical of the classical pigments as characterized by the azo group (−N=N−). However, there are still controversial discussions on the azo form whether it exists as the azo form in the solid state or in the form of hydrazone structure (=N−NH−). We have tackled this problem from the aspects of X-ray structure analysis and the chromophoric theory in an attempt to construct a model that satisfies these requirements, using methyl orange derivative (MOH), Pigment Red 3 (PR3), and Pigment Yellow 3 (PY3). Then, we found a protonated azo structure (−N=N+H−) in these compounds as caused by NH…O “inter”- molecular hydrogen bonds in MOH, as well as by “intra”-molecular hydrogen bonds in PR3 and PY3. The present protonated azo model is borne out by the crystallographic azo bond-length as well as the chromophoric theory. These results lead us to conclude that the protonated azo structure is the right form in the solid state of hydrogen-bonded azo pigments as described above.

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.
