Fluorescence in Polymers: 2-Diphenylacetyl-1, 3-Indanedione-1-Imine Derivatives in Polymer Matrices
Applications of fluorescence effects in polymers, both in solution or in solid polymer matrices are found in the literature, many related to chemical or physical changes in the polymers1. The purpose of this investigation is to prepare a fluorescent polymer system in which fluorescence enhancement can be used as a probe of chemical environment. Two fluorescent dyes, 2-diphenyl-acetyl-1, 3-indanedione-1-imine derivatives, have been chosen for the study. These dyes have been shown to complex with many chemical compounds on solid supports such as glass fiber paper and exhibit a strong fluorescence enhancement 2,3. Enhancement is observed with some insecticides, herbicides, α-hydroxy acid esters and α-amino acids. Of the fluorescent compounds tested, 3 in equation (1) exhibited the strongest effect. This is a report of the preparation of polyurethane elastomers containing 3 and the hydroxyethyl analog of 3,6 in Scheme 1, and the fluorescent properties of these polymers.
