The Chemistry of Natural Dyes examines the chemistry behind natural fibers and dyes and shows how these chemistry concepts are used in the real world. This monograph is the second in a three-volume series of monographs entitled Palette of Color. These monographs are designed to provide links between the everyday experiences of secondary school students and topics in their chemistry courses. This monograph provides background information on the history and chemistry of natural dyes, along with hands-on problem-solving activities on extracting, testing, and using these chemicals. All activities have been tested by teachers and reviewed by experts in the field to ensure accuracy, safety, and pedagogical effectiveness.
