  • Patent number: 7179308
    Abstract: This invention pertains to certain novel colorant compounds containing one or more ethylenically-unsaturated, photopolymerizable radicals that may be copolymerized (or cured) with ethylenically-unsaturated monomers to produce colored compositions such as colored acrylic polymers. Suitable compositions having the present colorants copolymerized therein include, e.g., polymers produced from acrylate and methacrylate esters, colored polystyrenes, and similar colored polymeric materials derived from other ethylenically-unsaturated monomers. The present invention also pertains to processes for preparing the photopolymerizable colorant compounds. The ethylenically unsaturated colorant compounds may be suitable for use in coatings that are applied to wood, glass, metal, thermoplastics and the like.

  • Patent number: 6713641
    Abstract: Disclosed are blue, diol anthraquinone blue colorant compounds having excellent thermal stability and which can be reacted into or copolymerized with polyester thus providing a blue-colored polyesters useful for manufacturing a variety of shaped articles such as photographic film base, particularly roentgenographic (X-ray) film. Also disclosed are blue anthraquinone colorant compounds which contain two ethylenically-unsaturated (vinyl), photopolymerizable radicals which may be derived from the aforesaid diol anthraquinone compounds. The anthraquinone colorant compounds containing two ethylenically-unsaturated may be reacted into or copolymerized (or cured) with ethylenically-unsaturated monomers to produce colored vinyl polymers.

  • Patent number: 5387704
    Abstract: Process for preparing amino- and carbamoyl-substituted anthraquinones by Diels-Alder reaction of an N-butadienylcarbamic acid ester of the formula H.sub.2 C.dbd.CH--CH.dbd.CH--NH--COOR.sup.2, wherein R.sup.2 is alkyl or phenylalkyl, with a 1,4-naphthoquinone or with 1,4-benzoquinone to form a carbamoyl-substituted hydroanthraquinone intermediate and by oxidation of this intermediate with an oxygen-containing gas in a tertiary amine and in the presence of a copper salt to obtain a carbamoyl-substituted anthraquinone product. The Diels-Alder reaction and the oxidation reaction can be carried out as a one-pot synthesis or in separate steps. The carbamic acid ester reactant provides a blocking group represented by --COOR.sup.2, and this blocking group is optionally removed by treatment of the carbamoyl-substituted anthraquinone with an alkaline hydroxide solution.

  • Patent number: 5034547
    Abstract: New anthraquinone dyes, free of water-solubilizing groups such as --SO.sub.3 H and --CO.sub.2 H comprise anthraquinone substituted with one or more identical or different groups of the formula --NHSO.sub.2 R, wherein R is a substituted or unsubstituted linear, branched, cyclic or polycyclic alkyl group having up to 20 carbon atoms, and wherein the remaining nuclear aromatic carbon atoms of the anthraquinone may be substituted with substituents selected from the group: alkyl; the halogens F, Cl, and Br; cyano; nitro; aminosulfonyl; arylsulfonylamino; and --NHCOQ; wherein Q is hydrogen, an alkyl, an aryl, or a heterocyclic group.These dyes have improved solubility, lowered melting point, and possess outstanding resistance to light-induced fading.
