"Yellow Anil Dye"

We are developing relatively stable anils ( imino linkages a.k.a. schiff bases) as potential dyes for use in gouache  paint formulations.  We anticipate color changes as a function of PH.
Below is an intense yellow dye derived from vanillin and p-amino phenol.
We generate no waste in our synthetic approach  to these potential dyes and possibly metal ion coordination may also induce color changes.

"Zig-Zag & The Cross"

Azo-gouache, gouache and acrylics on 11"x 17" bristol.
