Synthesis of Pigments and their Toxicity

Pigments have been used for millennia for artistic expression, however there are pigments that were widely used that have adverse health affects. This project will focus on developing classroom lab procedures for synthesizing and characterizing pigments. Student researchers will synthesize toxic pigments as will as the compounds that replaced them. Students will gain an understanding for why these compounds are toxic to humans and develop lab content around these concepts.
