New Blue

Oregon State University scientists discovered a new blue color by mistake. OSU chemist Mas Subramanian and his team accidentally discovered "YlnMn Blue", which is named after the elements that make it up. They were conducting experiments, one of which resulted in the color after black manganese oxide was mixed with other chemicals and heated to 2,000 degrees. One of the samples turned a bright vivid blue. Now the pigment has been perfected, and it will be sold as commercial coatings, plastics and paint. So you can paint your entire house with it!
