HARISHKUMAR, Hosanagara N.; MAHADEVAN, Kittappa M. e MASAGALLI, Jagadeesh N.. Facile synthesis of 2-(1,3-benzoxazol/benzothiazol-2-yl)-3H-benzo[f]chromen-3-one as blue fluorescent brighteners. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.65, pp.05-09. ISSN 1996-840X.
A novel synthetic method was developed to prepare new fluorescent 2-(1,3-benzoxazol/benzothiazol-2-yl)-3H-benzo [f]chromen-3-one derivatives 3a-p by the Knoevenagel condensation between 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde and benzothiazole-2-yl-aceatates or N-methyl benzoxazole-2-yl-acetates using choline chloride/urea ionic liquid as a green catalyst. The results of fluorescence studies revealed that all the compounds show moderate to low emission intensities and are expressed in the form of quantum yields.
