Abstract

Vibrant color sets are needed for color thermal ink jet printing applications. Some existing color sets have disadvantages such as the need to provide excess buffering in inks containing dyes which hydrolyze and liberate acid, or the need to provide buffering for other reactive dyes. Compatibility of colorants with ink components such as polyquaternary conductive polymers is also desirable.
