Designing a Color-Changing Paint Using pH

Rating
0.0 stars

How can an understanding of pH—a logarithmic scale used to identify the acidity or basicity of a water-based solution—be used to design and create a color-changing paint? This activity provides students the opportunity to extract dyes from natural products and test dyes for acids or bases as teams develop a prototype “paint” that is eventually applied to help with a wall redesign at a local children’s hospital. Students learn about how dyes are extracted from organic material and use the engineering design process to test dyes using a variety of indicators to achieve the right color for their prototype. Students iterate on their dyes and use ratios and proportions to calculate the amount of dye needed to successfully complete their painting project.

This is an online exhibit about color perception. Learners set a random background color and then try to mix red, blue, and green light to match. Although this is a perception activity, it also demonstrates the difference between mixing colors of light and mixing pigments. Why when mixing pigments does the color darken? How does this differ from mixing colored light? Find out here!

Molecular Structure of Azurite
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Azurite is a monoclinic blue crystal whose name is derived from the Arabic word, azure meaning blue. During the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries azurite was used as a blue paint pigment, but this pigment changes to green over time. This occurs because azurite reacts with water to produce malachite, which is green. Today this mineral is still used as a pigment, and as a minor ore of copper, an ornamental stone, and in jewelry. Azurite is found in many places but has notable occurrences in Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Morocco.
