Title: COMPOUND FOR USE IN COLOUR CHANGE COMPOSITIONS
Abstract:
Novel reaction media for electron donating and electron accepting components in colour-change compositions are described. The compound is of formula (VI); R1, and R2 are independently selected from an optionally substituted linear or branched alkyl group, alkenyl group, alkoxy group, aryl group and an alkylene aryl group having from 5 to 22 carbon atoms; X1 and X2 are independently selected from -OC(O)-, -CO2- and O; Y1, and Y2 are independently selected from hydrogen, halogen, R1, -OR1; y is independently 0 or 1; and suitably the groups R1X1- and -X2 R2 are independently in the ortho or meta position. The compounds are useful in ink compositions, writing implements containing the compound and medical and industrial applications in which temperature sensitive colour change may be required.
