From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term chromogen is applied in chemistry to a colourless (or weakly coloured) chemical compound that can be converted by chemical reaction into a compound which can be described as "coloured".[1][2] There is no universally agreed definition of the term. Various dictionaries give the following definitions:

  • A substance capable of conversion into a pigment or dye.
  • Any substance that can become a pigment or coloring matter, a substance in organic fluids that forms colored compounds when oxidized, or a compound, not itself a dye, that can become a dye.
  • Any substance, itself without color, giving origin to a coloring matter.

In biochemistry the term has a rather different meaning. The following are found in various dictionaries.

  • A precursor of a biochemical pigment
  • A pigment-producing microorganism
  • Any of certain bacteria that produce a pigment
  • A strongly pigmented or pigment-generating organelle, organ, or microorganism.
