# citation number color

I am writing my thesis in latex. But I wanna change "some" citation numbers color in text. my citation number color setting is as follows:

    \usepackage[unicode=true,pagebackref=true,
%\usepackage{todonotes}
\usepackage[firstpage]{draftwatermark}
\SetWatermarkText{\ \ \ pishnevis}
\SetWatermarkScale{1.2}
}
{
%\usepackage[disable]{todonotes} % final without TODOs
}


as you see, the above setting makes my citation number color to blue. but I want to change some citation colors to black.

for example only:

\cite{turnow2012flow}


changes to black not blue.

You can use the \hypersetup command to change the citation command. Enclosing it in a group {...} will make the change. Thus for example

\newcommand{\redcite}[1]{{\hypersetup{citecolor=red}\cite{#1}}}


provides a basic citation command that prints the citation in red instead of the current default.

\documentclass{article}

\newcommand{\redcite}[1]{{\hypersetup{citecolor=red}\cite{#1}}}
