Generally, we have an image that the structural colored material changes its hue depending on the direction of light irradiation and the viewing direction. I found that structural colored materials of various hues without angle dependence could be prepared from white and black materials. As a material, silica, titanium oxide, magnetite, and polymers can be used. We can obtain non-toxic and non-fading color materials at low cost using our materials, because the structural colored materials are composed of environment and people-friendly inexpensive materials. Moreover, because black materials exhibiting various functions such as conductivity, magnetic properties, photo-responsiveness, etc., functional colored materials utilizing these functions may be obtained.
