Known as Indian yellow or aureolin. It is distinguished from other yellow pigments by being unaffected by sulphurated hydrogen.
The potassium nitrite required in the preparation of this pigment is most easily made by melting saltpetre in a thick iron vessel and stirring in fine iron filings in small quantities as soon as the saltpetre begins to decompose. The iron glows brightly and burns to oxide, the saltpetre changes to potassium nitrite. The mass is dissolved in a little hot water, the solution filtered and cooled, when most of the undecomposed saltpetre crystallizes out, whilst the nitrite remains in solution.
After further evaporation and separation of another crop of potassium nitrate crystals, the solution can be used to precipitate the aureolin. The book deals with fundamentals of paints, Varnishes and lacquers, pigments, Oils used in paints and varnishes, solvents, dryers, plasticizers, additives for surface coating, various types of paint manufacturing etc.
