Abstract

Many pigments and dyes of historical interest exhibit the capability of forming Werner-type coordination complexes. The relationships between the structures and color characteristics of these colorants are reviewed in this paper, with particular attention to the work of Paul Pfeiffer, a student and long-time assistant of Alfred Werner's who did extensive work in the characterization and application of Werner's coordination theory to alizarin-related dyes.
