- n. A name of various coaltar colors used in dyeing. The various members of the group called
indulinesare made by different processes, but all possess somewhat similar dyeing properties. Those used for dyeing cotton are insoluble in water, and require to be dissolved in alcohol. For dyeing wool and silk they are made soluble in water by strong sulphuric acid. They all yield dark dull-blue colors similar to indigo. They are fairly fast to light, only moderately so to weak alkalis, but withstand the action of acids perfectly. These colors are all closely related to violaniline (which see). Those soluble in alcohol are obtained by phenylizing violaniline. They are known by a variety of commercial names, as violaniline, nigrosine, Elberfeld blue, bengaline, aniline gray, Coupier's blue, Roubaix blue, etc.
