(This article belongs to the Section Organic Synthesis)
Title compound was designed to be a black quencher of pyrene fluorescence. It was made amphiphilic to serve as a membrane-bound probe. The synthesis is a two-step procedure. The first step is a Mitsunobu reaction of [{(phenyldiazenyl)phenyl}diazenyl]phenol with 1,2-O-isopropylideneglycerol. The second step is the cleavage of the isopropylidene protecting group. The title compound has the extinction coefficient 59,000 at λmax = 380 nm. The Forster distance between the title compound and the pyrene was found to be 37.8 Å. View Full-Text
