manufacturer's name    Colour Index name    example known manufacturer
magenta MX-B reactive violet 13(Now available at ProChem!! )

Questionable (are these really dichlorotriazines?)

manufacturer's name     Colour Index name    example known manufacturer
yellow MX-R reactive yellow 4 (13190)
yellow MX-3RE reactive yellow 145
yellow MX-6G yellow X-6G reactive yellow 1 Synthesia actually a bireactive double-dichlorotriazine structure, not an MX
orange MX-2G brilliant orange K-G reactive orange 2 actually an aminochlorotraizaine, not an MX
orange MX-5R Orange HE-2R reactive orange 94 actually aminochlorotriazine, probably bifunctional
violet MX-5R Reactive Violet KN-4R reactive violet 5 vinyl sulfone, not dichlorotriazine

There are probably others as well that I have not yet heard of.
