Chromic phenomena, or those produced by materials which exhibit colour in response to a chemical or physical stimulus, have increasingly been at the heart of 'high-tec' developments in a variety of fields in the last decade. Many of the newer technologies, which are at the cutting edge of research, are multi-disciplinary, involving researchers from areas as diverse as physics, biology, materials science and electronic engineering. Chromic Phenomena covers five main areas: Colour change materials, such as photochromic, thermochromic and electrochromic materials; Materials which absorb and reflect light - the classical dyes and pigments; Luminescent phenomena, including phosphorescence, fluorescence and electroluminescence; Materials which absorb light and transfer energy, eg photosensitisers, infra-red absorbers and laser-addressable compounds; Phenomena involving the manipulation of light by chemicals, such as liquid crystals, lustre pigments, optoelectronics and photonics Providing an entry point both for new researchers and for established ones, this book, with its emphasis on the technological applications of these chromic phenomena, develops and investigates new applications for colour chemistry. It will be of interest to industrialists and professionals in the biological, medicinal, electronics/telecommunications and colorant industries, as well as academics in these fields.

In the last decade there has been a huge increase in research into colour related phenomena, matched by a large number of new technological applications of commercial value requiring a fully revised and updated edition of the first book. The second edition covers the areas where chemicals or materials interact with light to produce colour, a colour change, or luminescence and where "coloured" compounds are used to transfer energy or manipulate light in some way. Whilst maintaining the same format as the first edition, the topics covered and content have been considerably expanded to take account of the enormous amount of novel research being carried out in the field of chromic phenomena. Emphasis is given to the applications of such chromic phenomena in newer developments in cutting edge technologies and on the future technological applications of these and other colour related phenomena. The classic chromisms have been joined by sections on excitonic coupling in aggregates and plasmonic coupling in metallic nanoparticles. The heartland of industrial color chemistry, dyes and pigments, are covered together with developments in nanopigments and digital printing. Luminescent phenomena are at the centre of many of the newer products, such as fluorescent and electrochemiluminescent probes and sensors and the burgeoning field of quantum dots is described. Inorganic and organic LEDs are covered with their applications in lighting and displays highlighted. Photosensitisers absorbing in the IR and visible region and their application in optical data storage, photomedicine, solar energy and artificial photosynthesis are reviewed. Finally, the manipulation of light by liquid crystals and other photonic materials is described, alongside an account of their use in flat panel displays, holography and 3D data storage media, special effect pigments, lasers, and non-linear optical applications. The book is of interest to industrial chemists, professionals, postgraduates and recommended reading for colour technology courses at academic institutions.About the Author:
Dr Peter Bamfield has a PhD in Chemistry and over 40 years involvement in colours research. He retired as Research Manager for the Colours Business of ICI/Zeneca in 1993 and since then has acted as a freelance consultant to international companies, publishing reviews and presenting papers at colour conferences, whilst maintaining an up to date knowledge of the subject area. He authored a book on Research & Development Management in the Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry (Wiley-VCH) which is now in its 3rd edition.
