Abstract The massive industrialization of the nineteen century societies together with breakthroughs in Chemistry such as the discovery of new elements and compounds, allowed the production of new pigments. In this process, many new synthetic green pigments were added to the painter’s palette.  There is a significant lack of information of how the spreading of these products occurred in periphery countries in Europe. Based in technical literature published in Portugal between 1788 and 1904 this study shows that there is a large gap between the discovery and the commercialization of new green colours and their first references in Portuguese technical literature.
