While CVD has been extensively used for the preparation of thin films of inorganic materials, apart from its application to plasma polymerisation, very little has been reported on the formation of organic layers. In this paper we report the first CVD preparation of an organic pigment, quinacridone. A two-step CVD method and the effects of various deposition conditions on the deposition process are described. The characterisation of deposits by FTIR, Raman, XRD and chemical microanalysis analysis shows that they have very similar compositions and structures to commercial samples of the pigment.
