Influence of Dye Structure on Permanence
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.2000.16.1.art00023_1  Published OnlineJanuary 2000

The light fastness behavior of several classes of colorants was investigated on different ink-jet media. Their sensitivity to ink dilution and to environmental humidity is demonstrated. Cross-coupling effects are found for certain combinations of colorants. Most observations can be explained by a dye-aggregation mechanism that is more or less affected by the experimental parameters. A specific layer design is shown to improve light stability for certain dyes.
