Basic blue 141
|From:||ANATECH LTD <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
Basic blue 141 is a relatively new dye of undisclosed chemical
composition and hence no C. I. number has been assigned to it. Color
I was unable to locate it in any source for biological dyes, nor did
several textile dye vendors carry it. It is not represented in
Anatech's extensive reference collection of dyes (which are available
in sample quantities without charge to anyone with serious interest).
Basic blue 141 is in the oxazin (or oxazine) family, which also
includes brilliant cresyl blue (C. I. 51010), orcein, gallocyanin (C.
I. 51030), Celestine blue (C. I. 51050) and cresyl violet acetate.
Dyes in this family range from fairly simple structures to quite
large and complex, so I am unable to suggest a possible substitute
without knowing the nature of basic blue 141.
