Arylide yellow, also known as Monoazo yellow is a pigment used primarily in artistic oil paints and watercolors. The pigment is considered a semi-transparent, bright, pale yellow.
Additional recommended knowledge
Chemically, its molecular structure is composed of carbon rings clustered together with nitrogen, and having chlorine atoms attached. The asymmetrical arrangement of these additional atoms create variations in the overall color. Paint manufacturers market arylide yellow by different names; the most common being Hansa yellow, which was created in Germany in 1909.
Arylide is also used with other chemical compounds to create different pigments; for instance Maimeri, an Italian paint manufacturer, combines arylide yellow with yellow iron oxide and zinc oxide to create their version of Naples yellow light.
