    The goalThe goal of the course is to introduce students with the basic as well as advanced knowledge of organic dyes and pigments important to chemical engineers. Students will learn the synthesis of certain dyes and pigments, as well as application of the synthesized compounds and methods of removal of these compounds and their degradation products in nature.
    The outcomeStudents will acquire knowledge about basic principles and concepts in the field of dyes and pigments that will allow them to critically analyze and connect the new complex ideas during the further studying and practical work. Based on the acquired knowledge, students will gain the ability to develop new ideas and solving environmental problems created by the production and dyes and pigments application.
    Contents of lecturesIn this courses it will be considered: meaning and origin of the coloration; influences of structure on coloration; classification of colorants; structure, synthesis and application of colorant: polymethine dyes, nitro and nitroso dyes, azo dyes, di and triphenylmethine colorants and their aza analogues, indigo and antraquinone based colorants, vat dyes, reactive dyes, sulfur dyes; organic and inorganic pigments; pigments structure and classification; pigments preparation, properties and testing; plant protection from ultraviolet radiation; methods of dyes and pigments removal from the environment.
    Contents of exercisesDuring laboratory exercises it will be conducted synthesis of following dyes and pigments: p-nitroaniline red, malachite green, indigo, fluorescein, eosin, and preparation of literature work in the field of dyes and pigments.
