Organic pigments are further divided into two subgroups:

Natural Organic Pigments And Synthetic Organic Pigments

Common types include azo pigments, lake pigments, phthalocyanine pigments and quinacridone pigments. They are all artificially synthetic organic compounds. The intermediate, synthesis process and equipment required by such kind of pigments are generally the same as that required by organic dyes, therefore usually manufactured in the dye industry. However, as pigments, they are, after all, different from the organic dyes.
