Description

The first synthetic basic dye. The pale purple color was patented in August 1856 by William Perkin, a Scottish chemist. Mauve is an aniline based dye that is composed of amino-phenylamino-p-tolyl ditolazonium sulfate. It was synthesized from coal-tar when Perkin treated aniline with sulfuric acid and potassium dichromate. Mauve is not lightfast and but is still occasionally used in some watercolor paints.
