'Everything there is to know about organic pigments'

Revised and updated, this highly acclaimed work, now in its third edition, remains the most comprehensive source of information available on synthetic organic pigments.
The book provides up-to-date information on synthesis, reaction mechanisms, physical and chemical properties, test methods, and applications of all industrially produced organic pigments of the world market.
Standardized methods have been used to obtain the data thus facilitating comparison between pigments. Chemists, engineers, colorists, and technicians are sure to find this book invaluable.

'Presentation throughout is of the highest quality and the volume must now become the standard reference text in this important area of colouring matters.'
Dyes and Pigments
'This is a very wide-ranging reference work ... it would be difficult to find a topic in this field not covered by this book.'

"...eignet sich das Buch zur Einführung in die Thematik, aber auch erfahrene Anwender und Entwickler werden es als wertvolles Nachschlagewerk zu schätzen wissen...
Der "Herbst/Hunger" ist auch in der dritten Auflage seinem Genre zwischen Lehrbuch und Nachschlagewerk treu geblieben. Es gibt kein vergleichbares Buch, das einem die physikalischen Grundlagen, die Chemie und die Anwendungseigenschaften organischer Buntpigmente so umfassend, kompakt und eingängig erschließt."
