PV3-Methyl Violet 2B

PV23-Dioxazine Violet


Pigment Name

PV3-Methyl Violet 2B

Pigment Type

organic, triarylcarbonium

Chemical Name

tetramethyl violet

Chemical Formula

C24H28N3Cl

Properties

Methyl Violet 2B is a staining, transparent violet dye. It turns yellow when exposed to strong acids.

Permanence

Methyl Violet 2B will fade with exposure to ultraviolet light.

Toxicity

Methyl Violet 2B is harmful to living cells and organisms, so it is diluted in medical and biological applications as a topical fungicide or disinfectant. Methyl Violet 2B may cause irritation to the skin, eyes, respiratory tract, or gastrointestinal trac

History

Methyl Violet dyes are used in medical, biological, and pharmaceutical applications. Common Methyl Violets include Methyl Violet 2B, Methyl Violet 6B, and Methyl Violet 10B. They are often used as biological stains for cytology. The common name Gentian Violet is sometimes applied to this class of dyes. In very dilute form, Gentian Violet is often used as an antifungal agent, including in applications where there is contact with skin and other tissue. Paper impregnanted with Methyl Violet 2B is used to test pH because it turns yellow at pH 0.


Pigment Name

PV23-Dioxazine Violet

Pigment Type

organic

Chemical Name

carbazole dioxazine

Chemical Formula

C34H22Cl2N4O2

Properties

Dioxazine Violet is transparent and has very high tinting strength. It is a staining pigment, very dark valued when it is used at full strength. Concentrated, it paints out nearly black, but it mixes with Titanium White to form bright, opaque tints of purple. PV23 produces slightly redder shades than PV37. Because the hue can vary with the conditions of preparation and grinding, it may be offered in red shade, blue shade, and so forth.

Permanence

Dioxazine Violet has good lightfastness. There may be some concern about it fading or shifting in color in tints and washes. Some artists have reported that PV37, a molecular variant, is more lightfast than PV23.

Toxicity

History

Two molecular variants of Dioxazine Violet, PV23 and PV37, are available. They have similar properties, but mix slightly differently.
