You can thank an Oregon State University chemist for a new color!

OSU said chemist Mas Subra-Manian and his team accidentally discovered the new bright blue pigment while experimenting for another project in 2009.

According to the university’s website, it is now licensed for commercial use.

Scientists describe the color as vibrant and durable, and add that it does not fade and is non-toxic.

The color will be used for a wide variety of coatings, paints, plastics and even roofing materials.
