What parameters limit my choices of synthetic route and target composition? The goal of the research project is to find new, environmentally friendly, inorganic pigments to replace traditional yellow, orange and red pigments. Each of these parameters places some limitations on your choice of a target stoichiometry. Let’s consider each in turn. Yellow, Orange or Red Pigments Your lab section has been divided into three color groups: yellow, orange and red. The yellow group is trying to find a replacement for CdS, Cadmium Yellow. The orange group is trying to find a replacement for CdS 1-x Se x , Cadmium Orange. The red group is trying to find a replacement for HgS, vermillion. New Pigments Strictly speaking to be a new pigment your compound needs to be a compound that has not previously been made and reported. For our purposes we will consider the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics to represent all known compounds (though in fact the CRC handbook does not list many known compounds, for example there is at least one commercial yellow pigment I know of that is not listed in the CRC Handbook). Therefore, you should come to lab on Monday/Tuesday with one or more target compositions that are not found in the CRC handbook. Many of you might feel the prospect of finding a new compound to be a daunting
