JCE 91.05—May 2014 Issue Highlights

Journal of Chemical Education May 2014 Cover

Bringing Together Chemistry Educators

The May 2014 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education is available to subscribers.

Cover

The photochemical decomposition of aryldiazonium salts is the basis of the “diazo printing” technique (or “whiteprint”), used to reproduce technical drawings. In the article, Fabio Parmeggiani describes a version of this technique that uses a recent, much less toxic synthetic method to create photosensitive paper that can be printed by exposure to UV light through a suitable template, and developed using ammonia. With the three couplers suggested in the article, it is possible to obtain prints in dark yellow, red, and purple, as shown on the cover.
