Normal color, like we know from everyday life, doesn't change its color impression when you look at it from different directions. With the help of nanotechnology researchers at BASF have now managed to develop colors that change its color impression when you look at it from different directions. And even more effects are possible: The so called "mechano optical colors" change their color when you stretch them.
In this Podcast of “Chemistry of Innovations” you will learn how “colors without dyes” can have effects that are almost magical.
BASF Corporate Communications started a regular bilingual Podcast service in April 2007 to report on BASF’s innovations and research and development activities in an easy-to-understand, informative and entertaining way.
