Abstract

Perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic acid diimides (PDI) have been widely considered as efficient industrial colorants. Perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic dianhydride (PDA) has been used as starting material for the synthesis of PDI colorants. PDI dyes have been distinguished with various colorimetric shades, photostability, and good physical and chemical properties. A variety of perylene bisimide derivatives with different characteristics have been developed by tuning the functional groups at the four bay and two imide positions in the PDI structure.
