  Pigment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A pigment is a material that changes the color of light it reflects as the result of selective color absorption.
A distinction is usually made between a pigment, which is insoluble in the vehicle, and a dye, which is either a liquid, or is soluble.
For example, a pigment that is used to color glass must have very high heat stability in order to survive the manufacturing process; but, suspended in the glass vehicle, its resistance to alkali or acidic materials is not an issue.

 Pigment as General
Pigments are generally distinguished from dyes as colouring materials on the basis of their solubility characteristics.
Pigments are used mainly in the colouration of paints, printing inks and plastics, although they are used to a certain extent in a much wider range of applications including textiles, ceramics, paper, and cosmetics.
Pigments are thus required to resist dissolving in solvents, which they may contact in application to minimize problems such as 'bleeding' and migration.

 Photosynthetic pigment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A photosynthetic pigment is a pigment that is present in chloroplasts or photosynthetic bacteria and captures the light energy necessary for photosynthesis.
The reason that there are so many pigments is that each absorbs light more efficiently in a different part of the spectrum.
However, none of the pigments absorbs well in the green-yellow region, which is responsible for the abundant green we see in nature.

These pigments are fugitive to some degree, but advances in the later 20th century pigment technology have allowed these pigments to be produced synthetically, in a much broader range and with a greater quality than their predecessors.
Pigment is added past the saturation point when a special effect, such as bronzing (a certain kind of iridescence), or an increased opacity or matte-ness is desired without the dulling of color obtained by adding white or filler.

 Photosynthetic Pigments
In plants, algae, and cyanobacteria, pigments are the means by which the energy of sunlight is captured for photosynthesis.
However, since each pigment reacts with only a narrow range of the spectrum, there is usually a need to produce several kinds of pigments, each of a different color, to capture more of the sun's energy.

 Discovery: Experiments Confirm Novel Eye Pigment Controls Circadian Rhythm
Discovered in 1877, pigments known as opsins, which are linked to vitamin A and located in the retina, enable mammals to see by absorbing light and transferring visual signals through the optic nerve to the brain.
However, because pigments for vision and circadian clocks occur in different parts of the retina, some blind people who have lost the part of the retina containing opsins still retain the cryptochrome region and maintain normal circadian rhythm.
It may be that SAD patients have a defective gene that doesn't produce the pigment properly or simply suffer from a vitamin B-2 deficiency.

 Understanding Lead Pigment Litigation - Litigation History
Since 1987, companies that long ago manufactured lead pigment used in paint (or their alleged successors-in-interest) have been the targets of scores of lawsuits.
The lawsuits do not address the real issue, which is the limited number of landlords who have ignored their legal responsibility to maintain their properties and address any lead paint hazards that may develop.
Recently, in Rhode Island, a jury found that the cumulative presence of lead pigment in paints and coatings on buildings throughout Rhode Island constitutes a public nuisance and that Millennium Holdings, NL Industries and Sherwin-Williams caused or subtantially contributed to the creation of the public nuisance and should be ordered to abate the public nuisance.
