DES/PVP/ Yellow Dye Paint

 Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) are essentially non-volatile. I am developing dye paint formulations using them.  The own shown has a biochemical DES , PVP polymer ( polyvinylpyrrolidinone) , yellow food coloring and a very small ammoiunt of water. The paint is homogeneous and applied to poster-board.

The paint can be left open to the air and only the water will evaporate. More water can be added , if desired.  The PVP will form a thin film. The paint has no odor. Uniform application is being observed.

This is under development.  I want to see if UV radiation will occur with dyes under these conditions.


                                               One coat applied to poster board/ let dry 30 minutes ( 20 deg C) and apply a second coat.
