Abstract: A thermosensitive recording material capable of recording thereon colored images having high resistances to oily substances, plasticizers, moisture, and heat and an excellent storage persistency over a long time, comprises a thermosensitive colored image-forming layer formed on a sheet substrate and comprising a colorless dye precursor, a color developing agent, and a binder, the color developing agent comprising at least one compound of the formula (I): ##STR1## wherein X is an O or S atom, R.sup.1 is an unsaturated aromatic group or a substituted phenyl group having a lower alkyl or halogen atom and R.sup.2 and R.sup.3 are respectively a hydrogen atom, alkyl, aralkyl, substituted alkyl having an aryloxy, unsubstituted aromatic group, or substituted aromatic group having at least one substituent selected from alkyl, aryl, aralkyl, alkyloxy, alkyloxycarbonyl, aryloxycarbonyl, aralkyloxycarbonyl, and arylsulfonyl groups, and halogen atoms.
Abstract: A heat-sensitive recording material with an excellent recording sensitivity and capable of recording thereon high quality images at a high recording speed, comprising a heat-sensitive color-forming layer formed on a substrate sheet and comprising a colorless dye precursor, a color-developing agent, a binder and a sensitizing agent consisting essentially of 1,2-diphenoxybenzene.
Abstract: A heat-sensitive recording material with an excellent recording sensitivity, heat stability and resistance to the whitening phenomenon, comprising a heat-sensitive color developing layer formed on a substrate sheet and containing, in addition to a colorless dye precursor, color developing agent and binder, a heat-fusible sensitizing agent consisting essentially of at least one member selected from 1,4-bis(p-tolyloxy)benzene, 1,4-bis(3', 4'-dimethylphenyloxy)benzene and 1,4-bis(3',5'-dimethylphenyloxy)benzene, in an amount of 10% to 1,000% based on the weight of the color developing agent.
