Coloration Street: A recent report on a highly effective and sustainable method for the coloration of polylactide-based textiles is highlighted. In this new approach chromophoric aluminum chelates play a dual role: they act as catalysts and at the same time facilitate covalent attachment of the chromophore to the polymer chain ends.
