United States Patent Int. Cl. G03c 5/26, 1/02 US. Cl. 96-50 5 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A new use, as an antistatic agent for light-sensitive silver halide photographic material, of an N-ylide represented by the general formula wherein R R and -R are individually an alkyl group, an aralkyl group or a group derived from any of said groups, and R, is an alkyl group, an aryl group or a hetero ring.
This invention relates to a light-sensitive silver halide photographic material characterized by containing in at least one of the layers constituting the photographic material an N-ylide represented by the general formula shown hereinafter.
A principal object of the present invention is to provide a light-sensitive silver halide photographic material having fewer drawbacks due to electrostatic charge.
Another object of the invention is to provide a lightsensitive material resulting in an improved tone of developed silver image and a light-sensitive color photographic material which is excellent in image resolution and graimness.
When a light-sensitive silver halide photographic material is developed, undesired images in the form of branched lines and fluffs are frequently observed. These undesired images are the so-called static marks. It is believed that the formation of such static marks is ascribable to the fact that the surface of light-sensitive material is electrostatically charged due to friction and this electrostatic charge is discharged to excite the light-sensitive material. Such electrostatic charge results not only in the formation of static marks but also in the adhesion of dust onto the surface of light-sensitive material. Such electrostatic effects are unavoidably brought about every time light-sensitive materials undergo friction and is seen in almost all stages of production and handling of lightsensitive materials, e.g. in such film production stages as the coating of emulsions and the cutting and packaging of films, and in such film handling stages as the withdrawal of films from boxes, the taking of pictures by use of films, particularly those for movies, and the handling of films before development. Further, such electrostatic trouble is sometimes brought about also in the case of releasing lightsensitive materials. For example, in releasing in succession a light-sensitive material, which has been rolled up, in general, after completion of coating and drying operations, in order to transfer the light-sensitive material to the sub- 3,704,128 Patented Nov. 28, 1972 ice sequent step, or in unrolling in succession a rolled photographic paper in order to subject the photographic paper to printing operation, a static charge is generated between the surface and the reverse side of the peeled or unrolled light-sensitive material when the material is peeled from the roll portion. Further, in removing a photographic paper, which has been subjected to ferrotype drying, there is also generated an electrostatic charge between the drying surface (metal) and the surface of the photographic paper at the moment of separation, so that the paper can not be stacked at once.
In order to overcome such static trouble, a process is used by which hygroscopic materials are incorporated into the layers constituting light-sensitive materials. This process, however, is effective only when humidity is relatively high and is ineffective at dry times when the static trouble most frequently takes place. Further, if the humidity is excessively high, the above-mentioned process brings about troubles in the mutual adhesion between gelatinous layers of separate light-sensitive materials. In addition to the above-mentioned hygroscopic materials, there are a considerable number of compounds which are known as antistatic agents. However, antistatic agents are required to be such that they should not have any detrimental effects on such photographic properties of light-sensitive materials as sensitivity, gradation, fog, stability, etc. Therefore it is extremely diflicult to fin'd excellent antistatic agents applicable to light-sensitive silver halide photographic materials.
As a result of extensive studies on excellent antistatic agents which have no detrimental effects on light-sensitive silver halide photographic materials, it has been found that a compound represented by the general formula wherein R 'R and R are individually an alkyl group, an aralkyl group or a group derived from any of said groups, and R is an alkyl group, an aryl group or a hetero ring, is an excellent antistatic agent.
When the above-mentioned compound is incorporated into at least one of the silver halide emulsion, subbing, inter, filter, anti-halation, protective and backing layers which constitute a light-sensitive silver halide photographic material, it is possible to obtain a light-sensitive silver halide photographic material markedly improved with respect to static trouble. The above-mentioned compound not only has no detrimental effects on such characteristics of a light-sensitive photographic material as speed, gradation, fog, and so forth but also displays, depending on the kind of light-sensitive material, such desirable effects as to inhibit fog and to enhance stability. Further, when the compound is applied to a light-sensitive black-and-white photographic material, there is attained, in addition to the prevention of electrostatic trouble, such advantage that the color tone of the developed silver image can be made bluish black and, when it is applied to a color photographic emulsion, having a color former incorporated therein, the dispersibility of the color former is improved to make it possible to obtain a light-sensitive color photographic material which is excellent in image resolution and graininess.
Typical examples of the N-ylide represented by the aforesaid general formula are as shown hereinafter.

As the result, considerably marked generation of static marks was observed on both of the control films, whereas no generation of static marks was observed on the films treated with the solution of the N-ylide compound (i.e. the light-sensitive materials of the present invention). On the other hand, these 4 kinds of films weresubjected to sensitometry according to the method specified in 118 K7609 whereby the light-sensitive silver halide photographic materials of the present invention gave such favorable results that not only no change was observed in speed, gradation and fog, but also the developed silver image tone changed to bluish black. Further, these films were developed after storing them for 3 days in a thermostat at 55 C., and under the conditions of a temperature of 50 C. and a relative humidity of 80%, respectively. In this case also, the light-sensitive silver halide photographic materials of the present invention gave desirable results.
EXAMPLE 2 The compound of the formula 89 6 (C Ha) aN-NC O CuHst [the compound of exemplification (III)] was prepared in a 2% aqueous solution. To this solution was added cc. per liter of said solution of an 8% aqueous gelatine solution used as protective layer. Further, 2 cc. of a 5% saponine solution was added as a coating aid. The mixed solution thus formed was coated as a protective layer onto a high speed X-ray film, followed by drying. The resulting light-sensitive material was subjected, together with a light-sensitive material in which the above-mentioned compound had not been incorporated into the protective layer, to the same tests as in Example 1 to obtain the same results as in Example 1.
EXAMPLE 3 30 cc. of a 3% methanol solution of the compound of the formula [the compound of exemplification (VIII)] was added to one liter of a green light-sensitive high speed silver iodobromide color photographic emulsion. To this emulsion was added a solution of 15 g. of 1-(4-carboxyphe'nyl)-3 (4-palmitoylaminobenzoylamino)-5-pyrazolone (magenta coupler) in a 1 N caustic soda solution, and the emulsion was adjusted to pH 6.8 by addition of citric acid. The thus prepared emulsion was coated onto a cellulose triacetate base, followed by drying, to obtain a light-sensitive silver halide photographic material. This light-sensitive material was subjected, together with a control prepared in the same manner as above except that the abovementioned N-ylide compound was not added, to entirely the same tests as in Example 1. Provided that in the above case, the processing was effected in such a manner that each sample was subjected to ordinary color development using a color developing solution containing diethyl-pphenylenediamine as a main ingredient and then to waterwashing, bleaching, water-washing, fixing, water-washing and drying. As the result, it was observed that the lightsensitive material of the present invention had been completely inhibited from generation of static marks and, in addition, had been enhanced in dispersibility of the coupler.
EXAMPLE 4 |1O g. of the cyan coupler l-hydroxy-N-['y-(2,4-diamylphenoxy)propyl]-2-naphthamide was dissolved at an elevated temperature in a mixed liquid comprising 10 g. of dibutyl phthalatc and 30 g. of ethyl acetate. Subsequently, the liquid was charged into cc. of 10% gelatine in the presence of 40 cc. of a 1% solution of dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid, and then the mixture was dispersed by means of a ultrasonic disperser to form a suspension. This suspension was added to one liter of a red light-sensitive high speed silver iodobromide color photographic emulsion, which was then coated onto a polyester film base, followed by drying, to prepare a light-sensitive material. 0n the other hand, another lightsensitive material was prepared by repeating the above operation, except that to one liter of the emulsion was added 50 cc. of a 2% methanol solution of the compound of the formula 69 9 N-NCOCH:
[the compound of exemplification (VII)]. These two light-sensitive materials were subjected to entirely the same tests as in Example 1 to find that in the case of the light-sensitive material prepared by use of the compound of exemplification (VII), not only the generation of static marks had been completely inhibited but also the coupler had been increased in dispersibility and the developed dye image had been improved in transparency. In the tests, the treatments were carried out according to ordinary color negative treatments.
