This paper will briefly discuss opacity and brightness properties of paper and ways to influence these properties with wet end additives. Inorganic materials (clays, calcium carbonate, titanium dioxide, etc.) have been used to increase optical properties. There is a novel organic chemistry on the horizon that increases opacity and brightness of paper. This new technology may replace the existing inorganic materials and provide some side benefits unavailable from them. A brief comparison of the performance of inorganic and organic technologies is presented.
