Construction of a Coumarin Library for Development of Fluorescent Sensors
Construction of chemical libraries is a useful approach to the discovery of better fluorescent materials, and several types, such as styryl dyes and cyanine dyes, have been reported. In this chapter, we focus on construction of a library of chemicals having a coumarin skeleton as the core structure. Coumarin and its derivatives are key structures in various bioactive or fluorescent molecules, and their fluorescence properties are dependent on the precise structure, including the positions of substituents.
