  • Patent number: 8025723
    Abstract: An ink composition, such as a nonpolar liquid or phase change (solid) ink composition, that includes a non-polar carrier, and a nanoscale pigment particle composition. The nanoscale pigment particle composition includes a benzimidazolone pigment and a sterically bulky stabilizer compound, which is an alkylated-benzimidazolone compound, associated non-covalently with the benzimidazolone pigment. The presence of the associated stabilizer limits an extent of particle growth and aggregation, to afford nanoscale pigment particles.

  • Patent number: 8021475
    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.

  • Patent number: 7993446
    Abstract: This invention relates to a dispersant for an organic pigment comprising a compound represented by the below-described formula (1) or (2), and also to its use. According to the present invention, it is possible to provide a dispersant or the like, which can afford a coating formulation for a color filter. The coating formulation is prevented from an increase in viscosity and a reduction in storage stability even when the concentration of a pigment is high, and can fabricate the color filter with excellent transparency and color quality.
