  • Patent number: 8318052
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a pigment composition composed of compounds of the formula (I), (II) and (III) with a novel crystal modification, to their preparation and to the use of this novel product as a pigment. For many applications of organic pigments, for example the coloring of metallic lacquers or the use thereof in color filters, a very high transparency is required. To produce color filters, for example, particularly fine pigments are used, in order to substantially rule out the particle scattering which leads to a lowering of the contrast ratio. The commercially available products, however, do not always meet all requirements of the art. More particularly, there was a need for improvement with regard to the transparency and the associated fineness of the pigment crystals, and also the color purity (chroma).

    Abstract: According to the method of producing organic pigment fine particles of the present invention, when producing organic pigment fine particles by allowing two or more solutions at least one of which is an organic pigment solution in which an organic pigment is dissolved to flow through a microchannel, the organic pigment solution flows through the microchannel in a non-laminar state. Accordingly, the contact area of solutions per unit time can be increased and the length of diffusion mixing can be shortened, and thus instantaneous mixing of solutions becomes possible. As a result, nanometer-scale monodisperse organic pigment fine particles can be produced in a stable manner.
