Today there are thousands of known dyes and pigments and many chemists are employed developing pigments for use in many different industries. Educational Objectives: This experiment is designed to test the student’s # understanding of basic chemical principles presented in the course, # ability to perform basic laboratory operations, # general ability to works safely and efficiently in the lab, and
