  • Color-Changing D&C Red No. 21 and 27

    Hi All
    I am trying to identify which group/class of this (color-changing) dye D&C Red No. 21 and 27 ( CI45380:2 and CI45410:1 respectively).

    They are solvent dye. To narrow it down further, are they an acid dye or basic dye?
    Appreciate if anyone with more experience can help clarify this.

    The pH color changing is due to bromo acid powder dye that is water insoluble. I bought a couple this past summer but haven’t had a chance to play with them yet.
