The molecular structure of YInMn
Scientists in Oregon have discovered a “cool” blue paint that is non-toxic and remarkably stable even at high temperatures. The University has partnered with Ohio-based pigment manufacturer, Shepherd Color to commercialise the product. It will be some years before the product is tested by Toxic substances regulators and is available as a commercial pigment to ceramic or paint manufactures. Experts in the pigment industry point out that the pigment is currently at least 50 times more expensive than existing cobalt based pigments.
