    Perinone orange PO43 (C26H12N4O2) , is a trans isomer of Perinone. It is produced by condensing a Naphthalene compound with  o -Phenylenediamin.  This synthesised organic pigment, originally discovered by Hoechst AG in 1924 as a vat dye and then available to artists as a pigment in the 1950's, has very good lightfastness (ASTM I) in both mass tone and especially in tints. Produces wonderfully transparent glazes of a strong pure mid orange, perfect for rendering bright oranges or mixing subtle pinks and clean pale flesh tones. Is a very good substitute for a light version of cadmium orange. Mixes good neutral greys with ultramarine blue.
