Generation of profluorescent isoindoline nitroxides using click chemistry
Morris, Jason C, McMurtrie, John C., Bottle, Steven E., & Fairfull-Smith, Kathryn E. (2011) Generation of profluorescent isoindoline nitroxides using click chemistry. The Journal of Organic Chemistry, 76(12), pp. 4964-4972.
Novel profluorescent nitroxides bearing a triazole linker between the coumarin fluorophore and an isoindoline nitroxide were prepared in good yields using the coppercatalyzed azide�alkyne 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction (CuAAC). Nitroxides containing 7-hydroxy and 7-diethylamino substitution on their coumarin rings displayed significant fluorescence suppression, and upon reaction with methyl radicals, normal fluorescence emission was returned. The fluorescence emission for the 7-hydroxycoumarin nitroxide and its diamagnetic analogue was found to be strongly influenced by pH with maximal fluorescence emission achieved in basic solution. Solvent polarity was also shown to affect fluorescence emission. The significant difference in fluorescence output between the nitroxides and their corresponding diamagnetic analogues makes these compounds ideal tools for monitoring processes involving free-radical species.
