United States Patent M US. Cl. 96-91 R 27 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A heat developable diazotype copying material comprising a support and a light-sensitive layer formed onto one surface of said support, said layer containing a coupler which activated during the heat development of the copying material and at least two kinds of diazonium compounds forming a black azo dye as a result of a reaction between said coupler and said idazonium compounds.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION (1) Field of the invention The present invention relates to a diazotype copying material capable of forming a desired black copied-image through heat development.

(2) Description of the prior art The conventional heat developable diazotype copying materials may be divided broadly into three categories as follows by the components of the light-sensitive layer thereof and the pattern of the heat development process applicable thereto.

(a) Copying materials whose light-sensitive layer contains diazonium compounds, a coupler and an alkali-producing agent capable of producing ammonia gas when heated, such as urea, so that the coupling is effected by virtue of alkali produced by heating the copying material at the time of development thereof.

(b) Copying materials whose light-sensitive layer contains an alkali salt of an acid such as trichloroacetic acid which may be decomposed by heating to form an alkali producing agent, so that the coupling is effected by means of alkalizing the light-sensitive layer by heating the copying material at the time of development thereof.

(c) Copying materials whose light-sensitive layer does not contain any alkaline component, but contains a coupler together with diazonium compound, said coupler being activated and combined with said diazonium compounds when heated, so that the coupling is eflected by heating the copying material at the time of development thereof.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The object of the present invention is to provide a heat developable diazotype copying material of the foregoing category (c), and particularly materials which are capable of effecting the coupling of a copied image in black color tone.

The coupler constituting one component of the lightsensitive layer applicable in the present invention, it includes such compounds as expressed by the following general formula:

$OOH

HO OH 3,695,885 Patented Oct. 3, 1972 wherein:

R and R each is a radical selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, alkyl radicals having 1 to 6 carbon atoms, benzyl, bromine, chlorine, iodine, acetyl, and w-carboxyalkyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms; and R is a radical selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, hydroxyl radical alkyl radical having 1 to 2 carbon atoms, alkyl-sulfonyloxy (--0--SO -alkyl) radicals in which the alkyl group has 1 to 4 carbon atoms, carboalkoxyoxy radicals in which the alkyl group has 1 to 4 carbon atoms, acylacyoxy o (-OO-acyl)t radicals having 7 to 9 carbon atoms, alkylacyloxy radicals having 2 to 12 carbon atoms, w-hydroxyalkyl radicals having 1 to 3 carbon atoms, w-hydroxyalkyloxy radicals having 1 to 3 carbon atoms and alkoxy radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms; and

R is a radical selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, hydroxyl radical, alkyl radicals having 1 to 2 carbon atoms, alkoxyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, sulfonyloxy (-O-SO radical, alky1-sulfonyloxy (OSO -alky1) radical in which the alkyl group has 1 to 4 carbon atoms, carbamoyl radical, carbamoyloxy radical, carboalkoxyloxy radicals in which the alkoxyl group has 1 to 4 carbon atoms, acyloxyl radicals in which the acyl group has 2 to 9 carbon atoms, alkyl-acyloxyl radicals having 2 to 12 carbon atoms, w-hydroxyalkyl radicals having 1 to 3 carbon atoms and w-hydroxyalkyloxy radicals having 1 to 3 carbon atoms.

C O O H Y is a member selected from the group consisting of wherein:

(wherein R represents a radical selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, alkyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, hydroxyethyl radical, hydroxypropyl radical and acetyl radical); and X is a member selected from the group consisting of Cl-' /2ZnCl wherein:

R" is a radical selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, cyclohexyl radical, alkyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, hydroxyalkyl radicals having 2 to 4 carbon atoms, cyano radical and aralkyl radicals hav- 5 ing 7 to 11 carbon atoms, such as R' is a radical selected from the group consisting of alkyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, aralkyl radicals having 7 to 11 carbon atoms, such as cyclohexyl radical, hydroxyalkyl radicals having 2 to 4 carbon atoms and benzoyl radical; and X is the radical identical with that of said X expressed in the general Formula I.

00011 COOH Specific examples of diazonium compounds within the scope of general Formula I, are such compounds:

00 COOH Gen, noonrcni Diazonium compounds of dialkylaniline group expressed by the following general Formula II:

wherein:

R" and R""' each is a radical selected from the group consisting of alkyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, hydroxylalkyl radical having 2 to 3 carbon atoms and benzyl radical; and

X" is the radical identical with that of X expressed in the general Formula I.

Diazonium compounds expressed by the following general Formula III:

l rv wherein:

X" and Y are the radicals identical with that of X and Y, respectively, expressed in the general Formula I; and

R and R each is a radical selected from the group consisting of alkoxyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, halogens and hydrogen.

Diazonium compounds of benzoyl amide group expressed by the following general Formula 1V:

wherein R and R each is a radical selected from the group consisting of alkoxyl radicals having 1 to 4 carbon atoms, halogens and hydrogen;

R is a radical selected from the group consisting of hydrogen and alkyl radicals having 1 to 3 carbon atoms; and X" is the radical identical with that of X expressed in the general Formula I.

A coupler expressed by the above-mentioned general formula usually forms a purple azo dye or a blue azo dye as a result of a coupling reaction between said coupler and a diazonium compound generally employed for conventional diazotype copying materials, but in case where a coupling reaction is effected between said coupler and a member selected from the group consisting of diazonium compounds expressed by the foregoing general Formulas I and I along with a member selected from the group consisting of diazonium compounds expressed by the foregoing general Formulas II, III or IV, there is formed a black azo dye. And, in case where a coupling reaction is effected between said coupler and a single member selected from the group consisting of diazonium compounds expressed by said general Formula I or general Formula I, there is formed a yellow azo dye.

In other words, the present invention stems from the knowedge obtained through observation and study of the coupling reaction effected by means of varieties of combinations of diazonium compounds and coupler. At least one member as illustrated by Formulas I and I must be contained in the light-sensitive layer of the copying material. Diazonium compounds expressed by the general Formulas II through IV represent the optimum examples,

but any other diazonium compound generally employed in this field of art and capable of forming a blue azo dye or a purple azo dye as a result of coupling reaction between a coupler expressed by the foregoing general formula and said diazonium compound is also applicable in the present invention.

In addition to the diazonium compounds and the coupler as mentioned above, an organic acid such as citric acid, tartaric acid, etc. as the acid component contributing to the preservability of the copying material, thiourea contributing to the prevention of fading as well as the preservability of the copying material, and so-called coupling assistant such as guanidine sulfate, pentaerythritol, O- methyl-isothiourea, guanylurea, etc. contributing to accelerating the coupling can be also employed as a component of the light-sensitive layer in the same way as in the case of conventional heat developable diazotype copying materials. Further, though it has no direct bearing on the component of the light-sensitive layer, a small amount of alkali metal or alkaline earth metal salt of an organic acid such as sodium citrate, calcium citrate, magnesium citrate, sodium tartrate, calcium tartarate, calcium gluconate, etc. may be employed as a assistant dissolving agent to accelerate dissolution of the foregoing coupler in preparing a solution for use in forming the light-sensitive layer.

By applying an aqueous solution comprising the above mentioned components dissolved therein onto one surface of a support such as paper, an acetate film, a polyester film, a synthetic paper, etc. and drying thereafter, the intended copying material can be obtained. The thus obtained heat developable diazotype copying material of the present invention is characterized not only by the production of a distinct black-color image when employed for actual copying but also by the fact that the light-sensitive layer has a satisfactory heat-resisting property. In other words, the decomposition temperatures of diazonium compounds expressed by the general Formula I or I' are comparatively higher than those of conventional diazonium compounds and are in the range of from 150 to 200 C. Accordingly, in case of a copying material employing the compounds of this invention, the decomposition loss of the diazonium compound at the time of heat development is relatively small and a highly concentrated color development can be obtained. That is, since the copying material of the present invention employs a specifically selected diazonium compound as set forth above, even if the coupling is effected at a temperature in the range of from 150 to 200 (3., there will occur no loss of the diazonium compound due to heating, and a highly concentrated color development can be expected. Moreover, the copied image formed by the copying material of the present invention, that is, the dye produced thereby has excellent interceptive property for ultarviolet rays. Therefore, it has the advantage of being also applicable as the copying material for a second original for use in a diazotype copying material. Further, since the present copying material contains no alkaliproducing agent in the light-sensitive layer, the preservability of the copying material per se is superb, and at the same time, it has the advantage of minimizing the discoloration of the copied image formed thereon.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS The etfect of the present invention will be further eluciated in the following comparative examples of copying materials provided with a light-sensitive layer containing just one kind of diazonium compound together with coupler expressed by the foregoing general formula and examples embodying the present invention wherein the copying material is provided with a light-sensitive layer containing at least two kinds of diazonium compounds together with said coupler.
