"... the book under review is a class by itself...gives very useful information to the paint chemist regarding the basics and application aspects of the various pigments used in the chemical industry." - Bulletin of Electrochemistry "Inorganic Pigments - you can't live without them! They significantly change our surroundings; they are irreplaceable for the coloring of construction materials. Their applications range from concrete to artist's colors, from industrial paints to toners in photocopiers, from coloring in foodstuffs to raw materials for catalysts. ... it provides the reader with the information necessary for the choice of the ideal pigment for an application. ...it will be a helpful tool for everyone involved in the application of inorganic pigments." - Die Farbe "...More than 40 experts present the field of inorganic pigments in its whole breadth, but very concisely compared to the handbooks by Lewis, Patton or Kittel. It can be warmly recommended as a reference work and source of information for research, industry and the economy." - Nachrichten in Chemie, Technik und Laboratorium "A compilation of inorganic pigments is at least as important as the treatise on industrial organic pigments by W. Herbst and K. Hunger, published by VCH in 1993. ...The book offers a balanced and practice-oriented introduction to this subject area. It is to be recommended to those entering this field, but also to the chemistry student seeking orientation." - Chemie Ingenieur Technik "The list of expert authors with mention about their respective section is presented at the beginning of the book and the whole matter is ably edited as a continuous piece, as if written by one group." - Journal of the Institution of Chemists India
