The chemistry of color is actually a representation of the physical properties of chemicals that come through absorption of energy. The colors we see are a function of the light and energy absorbed and reflected by the materials and substances we observe. The chemistry of color is part organic chemistry, part physics known as spectroscopy.

In this podcast, we look at the basics of the chemistry of color.
