- noun mesquite pod used in tanning and dyeing
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This darkening effect of Neradol D is most conspicuous in the case of mangrove, maletto, and chestnut, but is absent in the case of algarobilla, dividivi, gambir, sumac, and valonea.
It occurs with gallic acid, tannin, and ellagic acid in dividivi, myrabolams, algarobilla, and chestnut wood extracts.
In the natural products which have just been enumerated, the tannic acid is accompanied by some colouring matter, which is also absorbed by the cotton; in some (sumac and galls) this colour is present in but small quantities; in others (divi-divi, myrabolams, algarobilla), there is a large quantity; therefore cotton treated with these comes out more or less coloured.
