If you have 14 minutes to spare, this Radio 4 documentary about the first synthetic dye is worth listening to. It also shows what you can do with waste products from another process.

There are lots of interesting snippets, like the idea of sending samples to India to test for light fastness, and the new problems of having servants who take to wearing bright colours.
