DETERMINATION OF THE SPECIFIC RATE CONSTANT FOR THE LOSS OF A YELLOW INTERMEDIATE DURING THE FADING OF ALIZARIN LAKE
Robert L. Feller, Ruth M. Johnston-Feller, & Catherine Bailie
ABSTRACT—In the course of photochemically-induced fading, alizarin lake mixed with a photochemically-inert titanium white in a poly(vinylacetate) vehicle apparently passes through a yellow intermediate stage. A simple graphical method is described which permitted calculation of the specific rate constant for the first-order rate of fading of the yellow intermediate.
