Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Colorants include dyes and pigments. Colorants have structures which contain delocalized systems with conjugated double bonds called chromophore and color aids called auxochromes. Based on their origin, colorants are classified as either natural or synthetic.

This Special Issue aims to collect review papers covering the more recent developments in the field in order to provide readers with an overview of the relevant contributions to the development of the colorant field. Papers can cover studies related to all aspects of natural and synthetic colorant chemistry, analysis, properties, and applications, including (but not limited to) natural colorants, food colorants, and chromophore/luminescence/fluorescence.
